SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell worked the defense before spinning for a shot during Utah’s game against the San Antonio Spurs.

The Jazz hosted the Spurs at Vivint Arena on Friday, December 17.

With 5:32 left in the second quarter, Mitchell dribbled the ball and put some moves on Spurs guard Tre Jones. The San Antonio guard couldn’t keep up with the fifth-year Jazzman, who spun his way to the basket for two points despite getting fouled. Mitchell completed the three-point play at the foul line.

Mitchell’s layup and free throw stretched Utah’s lead to 54-47.

During his first 11 minutes on the hardwood, Mitchell had 11 points on 3-5 shooting, including 2-3 from downtown. He added three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and a block.

This season, Mitchell is averaging 24.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per contest.

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