Still, the Jazz were unified in their postgame locker room in support of Mitchell, who was booed throughout the game by Philadelphia fans who has not forgotten the disputed race to be NBA Rookie of the Year last season between him and Ben Simmons of the 76ers.
"We a lot of guys that can make shots, and when we move the ball, find the open man, we shoot with more confidence and they go in", Gobert said.
