SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell continued his hot streak at the end of second quarter with a deep contested three-pointer in Game 2.

With 13 seconds left in the second quarter, Donovan Mitchell got a switch on a screen from Patrick Beverley to Marcus Morris. Mitchell then went to the left angle and drilled a deep three-pointer over Morris that made Vivint Arena loud.

In the final seconds of the half, the Clippers lost control of the ball and Joe Ingles picked it up and nearly made a halfcourt shot. The Jazz took a 66-53 halftime lead.

Mitchell was red hot in the first half, scoring 27 points on 11-of-16 shooting from the field and 5-for-8 from beyond the arc. He dropped 14 points in the first quarter and 13 in the second quarter. Jordan Clarkson added 15 points off the bench. Kawhi Leonard led the Clippers with 14 points in the first half.

In the last 40 minutes of play, Mitchell has scored 59 points.

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