SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz star guard Donovan Mitchell fired up the crowd at Vivint Arena by converting a four-point play in the first quarter.

It was the first game back for Donovan Mitchell after missing the last 17 games for the Jazz due to an ankle injury. Early in the first quarter of Game 2 against the Memphis Grizzlies, Mitchell darted to the top of the three-point line as Dillon Brooks collided with the Jazz All-Star. Mitchell fired up the three as the whistle was blown and nailed the triple.

After hitting the free throw, Mitchell gave the Jazz an 11-10 lead with 6:29 left in the first quarter.

Mitchell then went on to hit two more free throws and another three-pointer. With just over four minutes remaining in the opening period, Mitchell sat on the bench. TNT analyst Reggie Miller said on the broadcast that Quin Snyder told them that Mitchell was on a minutes restriction.

The Jazz star finished the first quarter with 12 points on 3-of-5 shooting from the three-point line in eight minutes on the floor.

Utah will head to Memphis for Game 3 on Saturday, May 29 at 7:30 p.m. MDT. The game will be televised on ESPN and AT&T SportsNet.
