SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell rocketed a baseball-style pass to Royce O’Neale during Utah’s game against the New York Knicks.

The Knicks hosted the Jazz at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, March 20.

With 1:04 to go in the first half, Mitchell drove the lane before throwing an impressive pass to O’Neale for a corner three-pointer.

O’Neale’s triple extended Utah’s lead to 60-50.

At halftime, the Jazz owned a 60-53 lead.

Mitchell led the Jazz with 18 points on 5-10 shooting, including 3-5 from beyond the arc. He added three rebounds, three assists, and a steal in 17 minutes.

O’Neale had nine points on 3-7 field goals, all from downtown. He added two rebounds in 17 minutes of action.

This season, Mitchell is averaging 25.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game.

O’Neale is averaging 7.8 points on 49.1 percent shooting, including 41.3 percent from distance.

Jazz vs. Knicks

Though Donovan Mitchell missed Friday’s game against the Clippers, the guard is expected back tonight against the New York Knicks.

Despite a lengthy injury report for the Jazz, Mitchell was one of the few rotation players not on the list.

Mike Conley, Bojan Bogdanovic, Trent Forrest, and Danuel House Jr. are all out as the Jazz being their six-game road trip in New York.

Hassan Whiteside is listed as questionable.

After beginning the road trip against the Knicks, the Jazz will face the Brooklyn Nets, Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets, Dallas Mavericks, and Los Angeles Clippers before returning to Utah for one home game against the Los Angeles Lakers, before traveling to Golden State to face the Warriors.

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