SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Donovan Mitchell clapped back against @TheHoopCentral on Twitter when the account accused him of doing “the same exact dunk every time.”

Mitchell quoted the tweet simply saying, “Yup….(shrug emoji).”

He then responded again telling @TheHoopCentral, “Lemme know if you wanna jump (crying, laughing emoji).”

The Utah Jazz have been on a hot streak as of late, and Mitchell taking flight and slamming them in is a big part of the team’s success.

This particular dunk came Monday night in Salt Lake City against the Pistons when Mitchell drove down the paint and threw down an impressive slam dunk in the final minute of the first half.

Mitchell led the Jazz’s victory over the Pistons with 23 points. He shot 7-15 from the field, added 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and a steal in 32 minutes on the court. The Jazz star recorded a team-high plus-minus rating of +21.

Mitchell has scored 20 points or more in 11 of Utah’s last 12 games. Monday’s victory was his 27th game this season with at least 20 points.

Next up the Jazz travel to Chicago for a matchup against the Bulls on January 2.
