VIDEO: Donovan Mitchell puts Paul George on skates with killer crossover
Los Angeles Clippers superstar Paul George just got back from an injury after missing seven games. But he might need to check on that bothersome toe once more after Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz put him on skates on Friday.
In the second half of the Clips’ hosting of the Jazz at Staples Center, Mitchell completely brushed off George’s defense with a simple yet slick crossover. That deceiving move got PG13 stumbling to one direction, as Spida had all the space in the world to get off an easy jumper at his expense.

While it was Donovan Mitchell who served up several highlights on Friday, it was Paul George and the Clippers who got the win in the end. They snapped Utah’s red-hot eight-game winning streak with a 116-112 statement victory.
Mitchell tallied a game-high 35 points on 12-for-27 shooting from the field and 4-of-11 from deep, along with five assists, four rebounds, and three steals in 34 minutes. George, who was still visibly trying to regain his legs back, contributed 15 points, six boards, five dimes, one steal, and one block in 27 minutes.
While Mitchell and George clearly went at it on Friday, they might soon find themselves wearing the same jersey as both are expected to be named as Western Conference All-Star reserves next week.
