SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell gifted the fans in attendance one of the best plays of the year with an amazing alley oop finish in the first quarter of the Christmas Day matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Mitchell’s teammate Jae Crowder’s pass was nearly as impressive, finding Mitchell near the rim from half court. Mitchell received the ball with his left hand and switched the ball to his right on his way to flushing the pass through the rim. The play put the Jazz up 16-12 in the first quarter.

Social Media Reacts

Following the dunk, Twitter exploded with praise for Mitchell’s dunk.
