How to improve now? Mitchell said “non-stop work” and being able to find different ways to improve — reads, tougher shots, efficiency.

Mitchell said watching film was the catalyst for being able to play through mistakes and stay locked in every game — "stay the course"

Donovan Mitchell said he'll probably watch all 91 games again before the Jazz get back for training camp.

Mitchell says the foot feels better than it did last night. It’s in a boot as a precaution.

Mitchell: I do get down on myself pretty hard. Said he watched Game 3 two or three times after his poor performance. “That’s not who I am."

Donovan Mitchell still feels as though Rudy Gobert is the face of the franchise

not the face but the most essential piece

Exum said the playoffs have absolutely helped him with experience. "Playing in the playoffs gives me an opportunity to see what other teams see as my weakness" like shading left and stuff like that.

Until the Jazz get that player, they won’t rise further than where they ended up this year: with a second-round loss to Golden State or Houston. That addition could be George, whose career stops so far have included Indiana and Oklahoma City, neither big-market destinations.

George would be perfect but it doesn't sound like he's coming. They need shooters. Hoping for superstars that likely aren't coming?

Quote:
He never completely blended on a Thunder team that had Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook. But there would be no competition for the position of secondary scorer on the Jazz, were George to play at small forward. He averaged 22 points and six rebounds on a team that already had two players that don’t like giving up the ball. Joe Ingles would be a nifty scorer off the bench.

I'd still start Ingles ideally with Rubio losing his spot or Ingles at the 4

If I am the Jazz and have a choice between Julius Randle and Derrick Favors, I am taking Randle everytime. #TakeNote

Depends on the price.Randle isn't ideal either unless they think he can hit the 3 better
