In Game 3 of Grizzlies vs Jazz, he was noticeably more different and calm. But according to him, this was his way of working back to his All-Star level.

According to Mitchell, “It’s a long game. It’s been a while and just getting back into it. That’s really it. Understanding that trying to save your energy as much as possible, not needing to be as exuberant, I think that’s the right word to use, but I think just not being as loud and kind of demonstrative in my movements.”
