Video: Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell drops Wolves’ Robert Covington with the nasty crossover, stares him down, and knocks the 3-pointer

Donovan Mitchell, Robert Covington,

Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Robert Covington might need to ice those ankles after Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell just delivered one of the nastiest crossovers/staredowns of the 2019-20 NBA season.

At the three-minute mark of the fourth quarter of the Jazz’ road game versus the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, Mitchell received a hand-off from Mike Conley at the left wing.

He baited defender Covington who went right, before snatching the ball back to his left with a quick crossover. Covington was unable to hang with the sudden change of direction, as he fell flat on his back, as Mitchell stared him down before splashing a wide open three-pointer.

The shot gave Utah a 10-point lead and allowed them to cruise to a 103-95 win and improve their win-loss slate to 9-5. Mitchell finished with 26 points, seven boards, and two dimes in 38 minutes.
