Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell praises Clippers’ forward Terance Mann for his brilliant Game 6 performance in the comeback victory
The Los Angeles Clippers made history last night. In the 51 year history of the franchise, they paved their way to the Conference Finals for the first time. The Utah Jazz, heading into Game 6 on a backfoot, came out roaring, as they went up 72-50 at the half. They extended their lead to as high as 25 points before the Clippers, fueled by a 17-0 run, made their way back into the game.
Terance Mann scored over 20 points in the third quarter alone and finished the game with a game-high 39 points. Paul George added 28 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists. Reggie Jackson scored 27 points and dished 10 assists.
Donovan Mitchell compliments Terance Mann for his terrific performance
Terance Mann played the biggest game of his young NBA career last night, and he showed up big time. In Kawhi Leonard‘s absence, Mann had been inserted into the starting slot in Games 5 and 6. Mann did not disappoint, as he carried the team’s load and tried to fill in the footsteps of ‘The Klaw’.
After the game, Donovan Mitchell kicked off his post-game presser by congratulating Mann. Spida and Mann have been facing each other ever since their middle school days. Mitchell was nothing but praise for the 24-year-old Clippers’ forward. Terance Mann returned the favor and complimented the Jazz star in his post-game presser as well.
Competitors since middle school.
39 points apiece in Game 6.
