SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell took a loose ball the other way and threw down his signature one-handed slam dunk against the Trail Blazers.

The ball went away from Portland when Donovan Mitchell took it and coasted the other way, finishing with a right-handed jam. Anfernee Simons threw a bad pass that didn’t reach Damian Lillard and Mitchell capitalized.

Through three quarters, Mitchell had 23 points, five assists and four steals on 10-of-16 shooting from the field and 3-for-6 from the three-point line.

Mitchell started out the game just two points in the first quarter. He caught a little bit of fire in the second by scoring seven points, making all three of his shot attempts. In the third quarter, Mitchell had 14 of Utah’s 41 points, going 6-for-9 from the floor and 2-of-4 from beyond the arc.

The Jazz and Trail Blazers game can be seen on AT&T SportsNet and heard on The Zone Sports Network.
