    This should be a close one tonight, I imagine. Both Booker and Mitchell should have their way offensively, but will either one of their teams' secondary options step up as well? That’s what I believe it will come down to in this matchup.


    All I want is a good game from Booker and a poor game from Mitchell.


    Jazz have historically been a "who cares" team. There team name is a background music genre for ****s sake. I don’t blame them for screaming "look at me" any chance they get.


    Good for the tank, bad for the soul


    Attacking Gobert isnt a great idea, JJ.



    Mitchell has a great hop step, man.
    Looks like DWade with those long steps.


    Man, I really wonder if that 13th pick was for the taking for Bledsoe, and if we would have taken Mitchell, but man I'd love to have that guy. People talk about Jamal Murray, but I'd take this guy hands down over Murray. He is the real deal on both ends and a total team player.


    Donovan Mitchell coming from behind to steal ROY from Ben Simmons would be hilarious... since the media have called Simmons ROY already.

    The guy is killing Devin Booker... wow. But Booker looks hurt or not himself anyways.


    I think Mitchell will be the best SG under 23 by next season.... he plays both sides and he is ridiculous from outside.


    Murray is a heck of a shooter... but so is Mitchell And Mitchell is more athletic and defensively he is a stud though. Liking him a lot. Well done Jazz.


    Wow that jazz trip was one of the prettiest possessions I’ve ever seen.


    wide open 3's for days, we are so ****


    I love watching the Jazz play defense. One day I hope that the Suns learn the importance of that side of the court. The shots we take have been substantially harder compared to the looks they get.


    My goodness Mitchell... superstar right there, seriously. Next big thing!


    Mitchell owning the Suns. Book doesn't even seem mad that he's being schooled by a rook.


    Ok... new plan.. Trade all Suns picks for Mitchell


    The Utah Jazz of ALL TEAMS is killing us on the perimeter. 62.5% from three and we're shooting below 25% lol. That's just ridicilous.


    The Jazz must have really scouted the heck out of Mitchell when they traded Lyles for him. They have great scouts.


    Ingles drives me crazy with his I'm hurt bad routine when fouled.


    In a redraft Mitchell would have probably gone in the top three picks. Maybe even #1.


    They just beat the Warriors by like thirty didn’t they? Regardless, Rubio and Mitchell gotta be considered great perimeter defenders by most measures. And then gobert psychologically forces players to take tougher perimeter shots as opposed to challenging him in the paint.



    What's the scarier possibility?

    1. Booker now sucks.
    2. Booker has given up because we suck.
    3. Booker is hurt and the team is playing him anyway for some meaningless wins.


    Mitchell at 13
    Booker at 13
    Kobe at 13
    Nash at 13

    We should trade down to 13th pick


    I will be the first to say it - when it's all said an done Mitchell will end up as a better player than Booker !

    im scared to see how many points Mitchell has

    Are we even playing basketball?

    The Jazz never let up. They are relentless.


    Mitchell the next Westbrook but with better shooting/defense



    I know this sub hates him, but Mitchell has it all. Damn what a player. because some random had a tweet saying Mitchell > Booker before Mitchell played a game and this whole sub overreacted


    Mitchell can’t miss at all right now. He’s already up to 29 points on 10-12 FGA in 24 minutes. Maybe comparing Mitchell and Jackson per 36 minutes last month wasn’t the smartest idea.


    Josh doesn’t know about Gobert...


    A few loud Jazz fans are gonna come in here and rub it in our face that Mitchell went off while an injured Book was off tonight and that's what I'm more afraid of, for some reason.


    “Oh this new guy is really showing a lot of intensity going to full court press....oh he fell on his *** immediately.”


    Hey if the jazz beat us by 30 we are basically the same as the warriors I think


    At least garbage time is fairly entertaining

    I knew Mitchell was going to be good (was one of my favorites in the draft after Jackson)

    But I didnt know he was going to be THIS good.


    Holy **** TJ is -48


    This team ****in blows. Was all pumped to be able to catch an entire Suns game that should be competitive anddd getting butt ****ed by the god damn jazz. Make it stop.


    Someone buy Rubio some shampoo


    Rudy Gobert is basically Josh Jackson's kryptonite.


    Ingles in portuguese means "English". i'm laughing about that now.


    Ricky rubio would be a lowkey nice addition for the suns.. He would be a big help to our young guys developing and he plays pretty solid defense at point


    Mitchell is embarrassing us, ingles too this **** is whack


    They keep rotating off of Mitchell. How dumb is that??? It’s like we want him to score 50. Ridiculous.


    DMitchell ******** on the Suns


    Ingles just faked TC so bad

    Donovan Mitchell is so nice, I wish we had him next to Book

    · He’s freaking incredible. Seriously, are there any holes in his game? His jumpshot is pure, he can get to the rim and finish at will, he can pass, he can play defense... oh and it doesn’t look like he showboats or gloats, either.


    I bet it’s so fun playing against this suns team. Like shooting in an empty gym haha

    Donovan Mitchell is better than Devin Booker everybody.


    can we trade booker for someone who actually understood what defense was growing up

    Mitchell>>>>>Booker


    Man, Suns freakin suck!

    **** me with a cactus

    So Mitchell might be kinda good guys

    Final Score: Suns are obliterated by Utah in 129-97 loss. The Suns are encountering a trend of not keeping games close. This is now the fifth time in six games where they trailed by 20 or more points.

    Rudy Gobert was altering EVERYTHING at the rim, blocking two Jackson drives plus altering a number of others.


    Mitchell is a beast

    I don’t know how he slipped so far in the draft. Imagine him paired with Booker here in the backcourt, oh mama…

    Suns fans have been absolutely insufferable and defensive about Booker v Mitchell. This game should shut them up.

    Most satisfying gamethread of the season for my far with a little bit of feels for how terrible and depressing their situation is.

    **** them. Don’t feel bad at all. They’re welcome on the Donovan Mitchell bandwagon like the rest of the fans at the game. . .

    Mitchell was a different kind of good tonight. Many of the suns fans were forced to admit Mitchell is better. I thought I'd never here that from a suns fan, ever!!

    Mitchell is perfection

    I like Booker's game a lot, don't get me wrong. But I love Donovan's game so much more. Part of it could be me being a homer, sure. But Mitchell doesn't seem to have a cold spot on the floor, he can score from almost anywhere.
    I know Booker is putting up more points and all, but that doesnt tell the whole story
    Plus he plays defense.

    I liked the posts from suns fans. Funny, not entitled pretty chill.

    Feel bad for them, their franchise is not in a good place. They should trade half those young guys now.
