Donovan Mitchell Scores 71 Points, Sets NBA Season-High


The NBA has a new single-game season-high for scoring after Donovan Mitchell put up 71 in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 145-134 overtime win over the Chicago Bulls. 

Mitchell’s scoring total is the most by an NBA player in 17 years, since Kobe Bryant scored 81 against the Toronto Raptors in 2006. Mitchell’s scoring display was the eighth highest scoring total in league history. 

“To be there in the record book with guys like Wilt is truly humbling,” Mitchell said. “I always believed I could be one of the best players in the league. I’m speechless and blessed to be in the company of that greatness.”
