After the game, Donovan Mitchell did his post-game press conference and didn’t bite his tongue speaking on Dillon Brooks.
“That’s just who he is. We’ve seen it a bunch in this league with him,” said Mitchell. “He and I have had our personal battles for years. Quite frankly, I’ve been busting his a** for years … There’s no place for that in the game. You have to protect yourself at the end of the day.”
“The NBA has to do something about it.”
“It’s bulls**t if I’m being honest with you,” Mitchell said of Brooks. “It’s complete bulls**t to be honest with you. When you start doing cheap s**t like that, that ain’t it.”
Cleveland went on to snatch a 128-113 win over the Grizzlies making their next match-up must-see tv.
Too many quotes, you’ve got to watch the whole thing.
