Mitchell showed a tremendous game dominance in France.
The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Brooklyn Nets 111-102 in the 2023-2024 NBA regular season at Accor Arena in Paris, France on the 12th (Korea time).
In accordance with the NBA’s policy of playing certain games during the season in a third country, not the United States or Canada, for globalization, the game was held in Paris, the capital of France.
French players who played in the NBA in the past, such as Tony Parker, Joachim Noah, and Ian Mahinmi, as well as Kylian Mbappe, the best star of French soccer, visited the stadium, drawing a lot of attention.
It was Cleveland ace Donovan Mitchell who captivated France with her great play. He played for 40 minutes on the court and completed a double-double with 45 points, 12 rebounds, six assists and four steals, including four three-point shots, to lead his team to victory.
Currently, Cleveland is not 100 percent capable as starting point guard Darius Garland and starting big man Evan Mobley are out due to injury. Mitchell, the team’s first option, has to shoulder heavy burdens.마카오카지노주소
However, Mitchell did his part in far-flung Paris by overcoming such burden. Although the bench did not provide support for outstrikes such as Caris Lebert and Sam Merrill, Mitchell constantly troubled the Brooklyn defense by mixing outstrikes and rim attacks appropriately.
Mitchell, who left Utah in a trade to build a new nest in Cleveland ahead of last season, is averaging 27.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.7 assists this season.
Mitchell was also away at the beginning of the season due to a hamstring injury, but after returning from the injury, he quickly improved his condition to fill the gap of the injured.
With the victory, Cleveland has won four consecutive games and ranked sixth in the Eastern Conference with 22 wins and 15 losses for this season. Considering that two of the top five players are out of power, the performance is more than expected.
Cleveland’s next opponent, who is looking to return from France and win five consecutive games, is Chicago, which will face at home on the 16th.
