Donovan Mitchell was eloquent and genuinely sad when talking about University of Utah shooting vitim Lauren McCluskey after the game. He spoke about his sister Jordan and just the overall fear of domestic violence. He offered the McCluskey family condolences

Mitchell’s performance during Wednesday night’s game probably helped those trends, too.
Just a reminder that Donovan Mitchell is good at basketball. #TakeNote
