Donovan Mitchell pokes Ben Simmons with 'rookie' definition on hoodie

76ers get team-record 15th straight win 121-113 over Hawks

Judging by the hoodie he wore Tuesday night, the Jazz guard seems to agree... "I'm trying to win games", Mitchell said. "That's all it is, just having fun and just enjoying it".

And, oh yeah, he did this all while breaking Damian Lillard's National Basketball Association rookie record for 3-pointers made in a season with 186.

Salt Lake City fans roared as Mitchell trotted downcourt after the big shot. From the looks of it, it appears to be a two-man race between Mitchell and Simmons. "Then I heard about what he said and I was like, 'whatever.' That's not my concern".

"Ricky threw a great pass and I made a great read", he added. "To me, it's not even close".

They can only hope to duplicate the remarkable turnaround in Philly.

I really don't care.

Mitchell was the No. 13 overall pick in the 2017 draft.

A fossil of a middle finger found in Saudi Arabia is the oldest human fossil found outside of Africa and the Levant . It was a scrap of finger bone, little more than an inch long, lying unnoticed amid a desert the size of Ireland.

Dictionary.com astutely pointed this out to Mitchell.

For the season, Mitchell is logging in 20.5 points, 3.7 assists, and 3.7 rebounds. per game. Jae Crowder ended with 11 points and six boards in 21 minutes.

The 76ers, who have won a franchise-record 15 in a row, can seal the No. 3 seed with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Only three players in the league had been less accurate than Mitchell * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/shooting/?Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&DistanceRange=By%20Zone&PerMode=Totals&sort=Above%20the%20Break%203%20FG%20PCT&dir=-1&CF=Above%20the%20Break%203%20FGA*GE*300" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *(minimum: 300 attempts from above the break) before this evening.

Taurean Prince led the Hawks with 27 points. If I wasn't a rookie this year, he would've definitely had it.

Judging by the numbers that Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons has put up this season, he would presumably be the unanimous Rookie of the Year if Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell wasn't in the mix.

I'm not talking about what went down on the hardwood, either. "I thought it was something serious".
