SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell made some great plays with the dribble in the first quarter against the Washington Wizards.

Less than two minutes into the game, Donovan Mitchell crossed over Russell Westbrook and finished with a no-look pass in the lane to Rudy Gobert for a dunk.

That play tied the game at 5 with 10:11 left in the first quarter.

Later in the first quarter, Mitchell had a nasty crossover against Ish Smith and finished with a stepback three-pointer.

Utah was playing without Mike Conley (right hamstring injury management) and Jordan Clarkson (ankle sprain).

Mitchell finished the first quarter with 17 points, which matches a career-high for most points in the first quarter. He shot 7-for-10 from the field and 2-of-4 from the three-point line.

The Jazz are currently in the middle of a five-game homestand. They will return to action on Tuesday, April 13 when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder. Tip-off is at 7 p.m. on AT&T SportsNet.
