In what proved to be high-scoring, close-contested game between the Denver Nuggets and the Utah Jazz on Sunday, Donovan Mitchell starred for the latter with a game-high 51 points that put him on an elite list. He joined Michael Jordan and Allen Iverson as one of the players to have multiple 50-point games in a playoff series. Amidst tweets that saw some hate for the Nuggets and massive praises for Mitchell, one section of the audiecnce were wondering where LeBron James was on that list, just to get trolled by the other fans. 

"No lebron not surprised," wrote one of the fans.



 

Bringing up LeBron was quite baffling for most fans who saw a Twitter debate break out. "Incoming People Bringing Up LeBron For No Reason ( MJ Still The GOAT But Why Y'all Bringing Him Up LOL )," remarked a fan.



 

"Where is lebron" incoming" a fan wrote as soon as Mitchell's achievement was highlighted.



 

One of the fans had a rather simpler answer: "I don’t see LeBron because Donovan and MJ better "



 

As per records, Jordan has five of the 10 highest scoring games in NBA playoff history. LeBron James is actually part of the list with a 51-point game against the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA finals and that time, he was part of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Meanwhile, some fans were just happy for Mitchell for a scintillating performance. "Mitchell Murray and Luka are the future of the west," one of the fans declared after the game.



 

"He's made the Jazz more enjoyable to watch since he's been on their team," reckoned a fan.



 

"These playoffs are wild as hell, Jamal Murray dropped a 50 bomb as well," exclaimed one of the fans.



 

Jamal Murray was the man for the Nuggets again, finishing with 50 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, but it wasn't enough to get the team over the line as Jazz now have a 3-1 lead. This humdinger of a game comes after Luka Doncic's heroics that saw them thump the Los Angeles Clippers earlier. The Nuggets will take on Jazz again on Tuesday and Thursday.
