MEMPHIS, Tenn. – As he’s done all season, Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell gave away a pair of sneakers to a lucky fan after his pregame warmups before the game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

This time, however, the lucky fan was Mitchell’s sister, Jordan.

The purple Adidas Pro Vision sneakers that Mitchell gave away to his sister were likely in celebration of International Women’s Day, making it clear how much Mitchell appreciates the women in his life. The gift to his sister was made even more special by the fact that the inside of the shoes bore her name.


MORE FROM JAZZ vs. GRIZZLIES


The second-year guard has made his sister and his mother a very visible part of his life and he often seen in the community with one or both of them.

Despite the kind gesture towards his sibling before the game, Mitchell and the Jazz fell 114-103 to the Grizzlies.

Mitchell scored a game-high 38 points with five 3-pointers made in the game.
