Paris Game Recap: Cleveland Cavaliers Win with Donovan Mitchell’s Stellar Performance

The Cavs and Nets take a while to get goingthanks to percentages that are decidedly too low to provide a spectacle, but they suddenly wake up and give the Paris public a exciting fourth quarter. The winner is Cleveland, who quickly takes control of the operations (16-4 score to start the game) and they never look back, also reaching +26 during the third quarter. The race seems headed towards a last quarter of garbage time, but Brooklyn leaps with pride and starts scoring baskets repeatedly, bringing the deficit under double figures and reigniting the Accor Arena in Bercy. Also the spirits on the pitch heat upwith Nic Claxton celebrating in Tristan Thompson’s face and the Cavs veteran even getting ejected after a half-brawl between the two teams, setting the table for the grand finale. Mikal Bridges and Cam Thomas try until the end, scoring 26 points each for the Nets along with the 20 of Lonnie Walker IV, but on the other side they find their way blocked by one amazing Donovan Mitchell.

Mitchell lights up Paris: 45 points and the decisive triples

Only the percentages from the arc manage to slow down the Cavs star, who starts by scoring just one of nine triples attempted. But when the Nets make up for it under the All-Star he scores three triples in a row, one more beautiful than the other pushing them back definitively, putting the exclamation point on a performance equal to his shirt number: 45 points scored with 12 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals, 15/30 shooting, 4/12 from three and 11/13 from free throws in just over 30 minutes, carrying the team on his shoulders given the absences of Darius Garland and Evan Mobley. He thinks about giving him a strong hand Caris LeVert with 21 points coming off the bench, while Jarrett Allen closed with a double double of 12+12. In front of an endless parade of VIPs – from Ronaldo the Phenomenon to David Beckham via Tony Parker, Joakim Noah, Pharrell Williams and half of PSG, from Kylian Mbappé to Gigio Donnarumma – the Cavs win the 2024 Paris Game and return to the United States with one more victory in the standings to seal the five days in Paris.
