SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell spun off a defender for a nifty reverse layup during Utah’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Wolves hosted the Jazz at Target Center on Wednesday, December 8.

With 3:34 remaining in the opening quarter, Mitchell spun away from Minnesota’s Taurean Prince and drove towards the basketball.

As he approached the hoop, Mitchell went up and under for a crafty reverse layup.

The field goal gave the Jazz a 29-28 lead.

At the end of the first 12 minutes, the Jazz owned a 34-33 advantage.

During the first quarter, Mitchell had a game-high 17 points on 6-8 field goals, including 3-5 on three-pointers. He added one rebound during his first 10 minutes on the hardwood.

This season, Mitchell is averaging 24.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.

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