Jeremy Evans is no longer the only Utah Jazz player to win a dunk contest. Donovan Mitchell aka SPIDA-MAN took home the trophy after four electrifying dunks. Donovan landed dunk after dunk and didn’t need a mulligan to pull these off. This was a tougher Dunk Contests than in the past as all four contestants really brought their A game.
For Donovan’s first dunk he pulled off some off the basket slam, but not in a way that you’d imagine.

He then missed his second attempt and instead of trying it over again, he went straight to a different dunk. AND IT PAID OFF as he jumped over his sister, Kevin Hart, and Kevin Hart’s son. He even had some theatrics with it.

For his third dunk he showed off a bit fancier version of the one he landed in the Rising Stars challenge.

Then for the finale, Donovan Mitchell didn’t hold back as he paid homage to Vince Carter’s 360 windmill slam.
