SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell used an impressive step-back move along the baseline that sent Golden State center Willie Cauley-Stein flying.

In the first quarter, the Jazz were making a run after the Warriors had a strong start to the game when Mitchell drilled the jump shot to spark a 9-0 run for the Jazz.

Mitchell recorded 13 points in the first half, while shooting 5-of-8 from the field. It was only a matter of time before the Jazz created separation between the injury-riddled Warriors. Utah had just a 30-28 lead at the end of the first quarter but finished the first half by outscoring Golden State 35-23 to take a 65-51 lead at the half.

Mike Conley helped Mitchell in the first half with 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the field.

The Warriors were playing without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and others, who are all out with injuries.
