1) The Dunk

There really are no words for this one, but I’ll do my best.

More from The J-Notes

Donovan Mitchell’s put-back jam was the exclamation point on a win over the Los Angeles Lakers that the Jazz needed desperately following consecutive losses. Mitchell was a major force in the victory, finishing with 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting and making key plays on both sides of the ball.

However, none were nice than ‘The Dunk.’

Perhaps more than any sequence since his summer league showdown with Jayson Tatum, his put-back jam against the Lake Show exemplifies what Jazz fans see in Mitchell — sheer excitement and athletic potential. Quite frankly, the Utah faithful could use another one of these to restore their spirits.
