Ladies and gentlemen, we have ourselves an early dunk-of-the-year candidate.

The Utah Jazz hosted the Dallas Mavericks tonight and Jazz shooting guard unleashed a cram that rumbled the entire Vivint Smart Home arena. Mitchell controlled the ball late in the second half and with his team holding a controlling 66-45 lead, he decided to go for it all before the clocks hit zero. Up against Dallas Mavericks rookie Luca Doncic, Mitchell took it to the hoop and embarrassed him with a nasty one-handed jam. This one was just out of control.



Donovan Mitchell is soarin' ⬆️

Mitchell wasn’t the only one to make highlights reels tonight. Over in Sacramento, Kawhi Leonard split two defenders en route to one of his nicer plays of the year in the Raptors’ 114-105 victory. Can anyone stop this guy right now?



The #Raptors are ROLLING.

Mitchell ultimately led the Jazz to a 117-102 victory with 23-7-5 and reminded basketball fans that he’s one of the most electrifying players in the game.
