Let us take a look at the 5 best players who performed at a very high level this week.
5. Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz)
Donovan Mitchell takes the #5 spot in this week's rankings. Mitchell has seen a resurgence in his form of late. He has started the season in some really bad form and was unable to get himself going. He was dealing with a few injuries too that led to a few breaks in his form.
But once he got going, Mitchell was unstoppable. He is currently averaging 23.5 points per game, along with 4.1 rebounds and 4 assists a game. In Week 21, Mitchell was playing some really solid basketball for the Utah Jazz.
They played the New Orleans Pelicans twice, where Mitchell scored 19 and 22 respectively, with a combined 10 assists and 9 rebounds. He exploded in the game against the Memphis Grizzlies, scoring a massive 38 points, along with 5 assists and 4 rebounds as well. Mitchell has been dominant for most of the season and this run of form seems to be here to stay.
