Donovan Mitchell had a motivational message for Darius Garland during Game 7

Donovan Mitchell motivates Darius Garland

Donovan Mitchell was essential to the Cleveland Cavaliers’ comeback in Game 7 to beat the Orlando Magic, and not just because of his on-court contributions.

Mitchell delivered a motivational message to teammate Darius Garland during the second half of Sunday’s Eastern Conference first-round Game 7. Garland struggled in the first half and got into foul trouble, but Mitchell pulled him aside onto the bench to give what looked to be a goal. a passionate message.

Mitchell also put his money where his mouth was. In the fourth quarter, despite Garland’s misses, Mitchell gave him a crucial three, giving Cleveland an eleven-point lead with just under six minutes to go.

After the game, ESPN’s Lisa Salters asked Mitchell what his message had been for Garland. Mitchell’s NSFW reaction was pretty good.

‘I said to him: excuse my language, I don’t care if… what happens. It is going to happen,” Mitchell said.

The Cavaliers trailed by as many as 18 points in the first half, but Mitchell led them back with a 39-point score. Garland was just 3-for-13 from the field and was limited to 30 minutes due to foul trouble, but he came up with that one big shot when it mattered. Mitchell’s belief in him certainly had to help, especially since Garland also made a big mistake late in Game 6.
