Video: Donovan Mitchell drops Jayson Tatum before assist leading to dunk
The NBA Summer League has never oozed with talent more so than this year with this dynamic draft class, and Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell stole the show against the Boston Celtics, dropping their prized No. 3 overall pick Jayson Tatum.
The 6-foot-3 Mitchell took on the 6-foot-8 Tatum, leaving him dusted with a spin move and dropping a slick dime to Julian Wright for the slam dunk finish.

If doing it at the offensive end wasn’t enough, the 13th overall selection took on the task of guarding Tatum himself, despite the five-inch difference between the two.

Mitchell picked Tatum’s pocket in an isolation set in the fourth quarter, with both teams tied at 60 — ultimately leading his Jazz to a 68-65 win.
The Louisville standout has shown just where his bread is buttered, racking up a team-high four steals in the game, and honoring his nickname, The Spida, thanks to his 6-foot-10 spider-like wingspan.
