CHICAGO, Ill. – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell pulled a spin move out twice against Chicago Bulls guard Tomas Satoransky before making a difficult fadeaway jumper.

Mitchell’s jump shot came with 4:03 left in the first half of Utah’s game against the Bulls on Thursday, January 2 at the United Center.

The Jazz star dribbled toward Satoransky on the right angle of the court before spinning against the Bulls guard. Satoransky followed Mitchell’s move but the Jazzman hit him with another spin, this time going the opposite direction. Mitchell’s move created enough space for him to rise up, fade back, and shoot an impressive 17-foot jumper.

Mitchell’s big bucket extended Utah’s advantage over Chicago to 44-39 with a few minutes until halftime.

At the break, Mitchell led the Jazz with 10 points on 4-7 shooting. The Jazz star added 2 rebounds and 3 assists during his 18 first half minutes.

Utah struggled in the final minutes of the second quarter and trailed the Bulls 51-47 at halftime.

Jordan Clarkson was the only other Jazzman to score in double figures during the first 24 minutes of play. Clarkson posted 10 points on 3-6 field goals to led Utah’s second unit. The Jazz guard shot 3-5 from downtown and added 2 rebounds in 13 minutes on the court.

Chicago was led in the first half by Zach Lavine’s 13 points.

Utah vs. Chicago is broadcast on NBA League Pass, AT&T SportsNet, and 97.5 FM.
