Utah lawmakers defend Jazz star Mitchell in feud with Shaq

Utah lawmakers took a stand Tuesday to defend Jazz star Donovan Mitchell against critiques by Shaquille O'Neal by passing a playful resolution that calls out O'Neal for his poor free throw shooting during his playing days and makes fun of the ''Kazaam'' movie he starred in more than two decades ago. O'Neal, now a studio analyst on TNT, upset Jazz fans when he said at halftime of a game last week that the 24-year-old Mitchell didn't have what it takes to be a superstar. O'Neal's take that Mitchell ''doesn't have what it takes to get to the next level is even less accurate than his 50.4% playoff free-throw percentage,'' the resolution said.

The Nets needed a 30-point quarter in each frame to fuel Saturday's 128-124 win over the Miami Heat, but James Harden was not much of a scoring factor. Harden netted 12 points on 2-of-8 shooting, going 0 for 5 from long range, while sinking eight free throws. Harden, however, made the most of his 38 minutes with a double-double on 11 assists. He added seven rebounds. While he could have been more efficient, in just the second game playing alongside Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, scoring is not a primary objective.

Murray's difficult, off-balance 3-pointer at the end of regulation forced overtime and Denver outlasted Phoenix 120-112 in two overtimes.
