SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell connected on a crazy 60-foot shot that didn’t count during Utah’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans

The Jazz hosted the Pelicans at Vivint Arena on Saturday, November 27.

With 7:55 left in the opening quarter, Mitchell hit nothing but net on a shot from beyond half court.

Unfortunately for the Jazzman, the shot didn’t count due to a foul by New Orleans’ Devonte’ Graham.

At the time of Mitchell’s half-court heave, the Jazz owned a 9-8 lead.

Following the first 12 minutes of action, Utah led New Orleans, 37-23.

During the first quarter, Mitchell had game-high eight points on 3-7 shooting, including 2-3 from beyond the arc. Mitchell added three rebounds, five assists, and a steal during his first 10 minutes on the hardwood.

This season, Mitchell is averaging 22.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.9 assists.

Utah’s game against New Orleans is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA League Pass, and The Zone Sports Network.
