The dunk was part of a big quarter by the two-time NBA All-Star.

During the opening 12 minutes of action, Mitchell scored a game-high 15 points on 6-8 shooting, including 3-4 from beyond the arc. He added one rebound and three assists during his first 10 minutes on the hardwood.

At the end of the first quarter, Mitchell and the Jazz owned a 32-29 lead.

This season, Mitchell is averaging 23.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.
