SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell looked like a Major League pitcher when he threw a crosscourt pass that set up a three-pointer by Joe Ingles.

The Jazz hosted the Bucks at Vivint Arena on Friday, February 12.

With 1:59 to go in the second quarter, Mitchell caught a behind the back pass from Bojan Bogdanovic before hooking a pass from one side of the arc to Ingles in the opposite corner.

Ingles caught the ball and sent a 23-foot jumper shot sailing through the cylinder.

The baseball toss was Mitchell’s second assist of the game.

It resulted in Ingles’ fifth three-point make of the first half.

At the end of the first half, the Jazz owned a 69-52 lead over the Bucks.

Mitchell had 11 points, one rebound, and three assists during his first 17 minutes on the hardwood.

At the break, Ingles led the Jazz with 20 points on 6-7 shooting. He also had one rebound and five assists during his opening 15 minutes of action.

Utah’s game against Milwaukee is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet and 97.5 FM.
