SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell threw down a booming slam dunk during the fourth quarter of Utah’s game against the New York Knicks.

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

With 5:57 left in the fourth quarter, Mitchell dribbled the ball up the court before spinning off a Knicks defender and former Jazzman Alec Burks for a drive to the hoop.

Mitchell rose up in the lane threw down a thunderous one-handed slam.

The jam put Utah up 93-87.

After the dunk, Mitchell had 31 points on 10-19 field goals, including 6-10 from downtown. He added eight rebounds and five assists in 32 minutes.

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

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.
