SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell put Clippers guard Patrick Beverley on skates with a crossover in Game 2 on Thursday night.

With 4:28 remaining in the first quarter, Patrick Beverley was guarding Donovan Mitchell at the top of the three-point line. Mitchell went around a screen that was set by Derrick Favors then the all-star went back to his right, leaving Beverley in the dust as he went around another Favors screen and drilled a midrange jumper.

That play gave the Jazz a 24-16 lead in the first quarter.

Mitchell had things going early by scoring eight of the Jazz first 10 points of the game. The Jazz outscored the Clippers 30-29 in the first quarter.

Game 3 between the Jazz and Clippers will be on Saturday, June 12 at 6:30 p.m. MT on ABC.
