VIDEO: Donovan Mitchell dunks all over Nikola Vucevic to start huge turnaround for Jazz
Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz is known for his hops after taking home a win in the Dunk Contest in his rookie season two years ago. Beyond that, Mitchell has also uncorked some stunning slams in games as well, including on Tuesday night against the Orlando Magic, in which he caught All-Star Nikola Vucevic with a punishing punch on his dome.

That dunk clearly fired up his teammates, as the Jazz went on an 11-1 run after Spida blasted Vooch with that slam.
This season, Mitchell has improved considerably and is definitely in the running for his first spot on the All-Star team, as he is averaging 25.0 points, which is tops on the Jazz, and is shooting a career-high from the field (44.9 percent) on a lofty 31.6 percent usage rate, which includes over 20 field goal attempts per contest.
The Jazz play against the Atlanta Hawks next on Thursday.
