Mitchell: 'Just the beginning' for Jazz after playoff loss

Jazz All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell was hypercritical of Utah's playoff losses to Denver: His eight-second violation in Game 1. Blowing a big lead in Game 5. Not matching Denver's intensity in Game 6. Losing the ball late in a back-and-forth Game 7.

It all added up to sixth-seeded Utah being on the wrong side of NBA history as the Nuggets became the 12th team in the annals of the league to overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a series.

One thing Donovan won't quibble with: The direction of the Jazz. He likes the trajectory they're on with the team making the postseason for a fourth straight season. This was simply another lesson to be learned.
