SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell connected with Utah center Tony Bradley multiple times during the opening quarter of action against the San Antonio Spurs.

The Jazz played against the Spurs in the final of eight seeding games prior to the postseason inside the NBA’s bubble in Florida.

Utah played San Antonio at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on Thursday, August 13.

Mitchell and Bradley were both members of the 2017 NBA Draft class and have played all three seasons of their NBA careers with the Jazz.

Midway through the first quarter, Mitchell found Bradley in the paint on back-to-back possessions. Bradley hit both field goal attempts on the pair of dishes from Mitchell to give Utah a 22-17 lead with 5:03 remaining in the opening quarter.

Mitchell opened the game as Utah’s starting point guard with Mike Conley sitting on the bench against San Antonio.

Bradley also started the game for Rudy Gobert who was also on the Jazz’s injury report for the game. It was Bradley’s third career start.

At the end of the first 12 minutes of play, the Jazz held a 41-24 advantage led by Mitchell, Bradley, and Jordan Clarkson.

Mitchell and Clarkson scored a game-high 11 points in the first quarter.
