This season, the NBA has entertained its crowd with many unique match-ups that went down to the last minute of play to decide the victor and, simultaneously, broke multiple records. One such match was the Cleveland Cavaliers taking on the Chicago Bulls.
Even though the Bulls were on top at the beginning of the game with a 21-point lead, the Cavaliers bounced back thanks to the efforts of their star player Donovan Mitchell who single-handedly turned the entire match on its head with an incredible 71 points to his name that won the game for the Cavs’ 145-134.
After the game, Mitchell’s Call of Duty partner Kyrie Irving suggested that he knew Donovan would go on to break records that night.

What did NBA fans say after Donovan Mitchell’s performance?
Fans were left astonished by the outstanding skills presented by Mitchell, many people compared the Cavs player with LeBron James while others compared James with Irving for his hilarious lying statement –
“Good. Records are meant to be broken,” he said. “I’m happy he did. What’s funny about it is … tell Don I shouted him out, but I was on Call of Duty a little bit before the game with Don. We were playing quads, and he was locked in, I could tell. He was locked in.”
One of the fans went on to say, “LMAO NO WAY THIS REAL LOLOLOL.”
“Must be hanging out with LeBron now if he knew that.” another added.
