Does Donovan Mitchell's domination of the Clippers call into question Luka's greatness? 

Post#1 » by Shock Defeat » Fri Jun 11, 2021 5:00 am

We have seen Mitchell get everything that he wants in two games vs the Clippers. This seems to indicate that any all star guard could do this against the Clippers' defense. Does this make Luka's performance against them less impressive? Especially considering he blew a 2-0 lead needing to win 2 more games to win the series but losing all 3 games at home. Did Luka become way overrated after his 1st round performance?

Frankly, I'm starting to question Michael Jordan himself thanks to Donovan's performance.

Nah. Just makes Porzingis look even more pathetic though when Gobert eats on the boards against the Clippers

Utah without Mitchell could probably beat Dallas with Luka. That’s how different their teammates are.

Mitch did not dominate the clips, Bogdan did.

With a healthy Conley, I am not even sure Mitchell joining Mavs can make Mavs beat Jazz. The Jazz is too deep, and they are very disciplined in defense. Would be curious to see how Luka call the switches to single out Gobert :crazy:
