Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell hilariously misses easy dunk
Utah Jazz superstar Donovan Mitchell is one of the most electrifying dunkers in today’s game. However, The Spidah submitted a Shaqtin’ A Fool entry early in the first quarter of the Jazz’s road game against the Atlanta Hawks after flubbing what could have been the easiest two points of his career.
Mitchell turned the ball over in the four and a half minute mark of the opening period. Luckily for the one-time All-Star, his teammate Derrick Favors stole the ball right back and gave him a wide-open look near the rim. The 2018 SlamDunk Champion elevated for the two-handed hammer. Jazz forward Bogdan Bogdanovic even raced back on defense since he knew it would be automatic two points for his team.
But he was wrong. Dead wrong. Mitchell hilariously missed the dunk as Hawks forward Solomon Hill cleaned up the mess. Here’s the epic blooper, which no doubt is already on Shaquille O’Neal’s radar.

Despite that brain fart of epic proportions, Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz are still sitting pretty at the top of the Western Conference with a 16-5 slate, heading into Thursday’s contest at State Farm Arena. To be fair, Mitchell will complete that highlight dunk nine times out of ten. Mitchell better be ready for some roasting from Shaq after this match.
