Donovan Mitchell gets savagely roasted by Josh Hart while live streaming
Utah Jazz All-Star shooting guard Donovan Mitchell and New Orleans Pelicans combo guard Josh Hart have a fun and unique relationship. The two NBA youngsters, who routinely play video games together, had yet another classic moment on Thursday during a live stream.
Mitchell, who won the 2018 Slam Dunk Contest, almost put Hart on a poster at Staples Center. However, the former Los Angeles Lakers guard blocked Mitchell and made sure to remind the high-flyer on Thursday during the live stream.

Both Mitchell and Hart are big into video games, more so than usual since the NBA has been on a hiatus since March. Mitchell’s Jazz teammate, All-Star center Rudy Gobert, tested positive for COVID-19 and it forced NBA commissioner Adam Silver to suspend the season.
However, NBA games are scheduled to resume on July 30 at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Mitchell and the Jazz have already clinched a spot in the 2020 playoffs, while Hart and the Pelicans have some work to do if they want to see postseason basketball. The Pelicans have to take out the Memphis Grizzlies, Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs to get the eighth and final playoff spot in the West.
Mitchell, who contracted COVID-19, fully recovered from his illness a while back. The Jazz’s leading scorer was averaging 24.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists for Utah before NBA games were suspended.
Hart, meanwhile, was putting up 10.2 points, 6.5 boards and 1.6 assists in his first season with the Pelicans. New Orleans acquired the Villanova product in the Anthony Davis trade with the Lakers.
NBA fans are eager for the “bubble” games to start in Orlando, Florida. Jazz and Pelicans supporters can’t wait to see Donovan Mitchell and Josh Hart, respectively, play the game they love again after such a long layoff.
