Ingram And Mitchell Battle

Grace Higgins | January 17th, 2020

On Thursday night, Brandon Ingram and Donovan Mitchell combined for 95 points in a 138-132 shootout that saw the New Orleans Pelicans outlast the Utah Jazz in overtime.

The game should’ve been over in regulation after Ingram hit a potential go-ahead mid-range pull up with 0.2 seconds left. When the Jazz went for a tip in at the rim, Jaxson Hayes was called for a foul on Rudy Gobert, sending the French big man to the line with a chance to win the game. Gobert bricked the first free throw and sank the second, forcing overtime. In overtime, the Pelicans prevailed 138-132.

Ingram finished with 49 points, eight rebounds and six assists in 41 minutes of action. It’s hard to imagine the NBA All Star game this year without Ingram appearing in it. For the season, Ingram is averaging 25.8 points, 68 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. As of right now, Ingram is ninth in All-Star voting by the fans for the frontcourt spot in the Western Conference. If he is snubbed, it would be one of the biggest snubs in recent All-Star weekend memory.

To combat Ingram on Thursday night was Mitchell, who scored 46 points and grabbed six rebounds. In the 2019-2020 season, he is averaging 24.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game, leading the Jazz to an impressive 28-13 record, good enough for the fourth seed in the Western Conference. Since being drafted, Mitchell has been the offensive workhorse for the Jazz. He resembles a young Dwyane Wade in how he plays and the type of shots he attempts, although he’s a far better shooter than Wade was.

Both players are marquee stars at this point in their careers, and are being overlooked because of the small market limitations placed on them.
