BASKETBALL. IS. BACK.
I means, it’s a scrimmage for Team USA, but there is some form of organized basketball being played here in just moments, and we will take all that we can get.
When: Friday, August 9th, 2019. 8:00 MDT
Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
TV: NBA TV, Twitch
What to look for
Donovan Mitchell. You’ve seen in almost every day in highlights of Team USA practices this week, whether it be alley-oop dunks, crazy passes, or just being a fun guy with his teammates. Now it’s time to see what he can do in the official scrimmage of Team USA. Will he throw down a big dunk tonight? My gut says yes.
Also, how great is it to see this again???

Welcome to the SLC Dunk Game Thread.
Dunkers know how this thing works, but for you lurkers ready to make the jump to Dunker, we have a few guidelines. Remember to follow our community guidelines (no swearing, trolling, excessive use of Jerry Sloan’s name in vain, no personal attacks, no debates about Utah liquor laws, etc.). Remember to have fun. Anyone who dare blasphemes that Tim Duncan was a Power Forward (this means you, Pounding the Rock), Ben Simmons can hit threes, Gordon Haywardshould not be booed, Exum Island isn’t a 5-Star resort, Donovan Mitchell is Monta Ellis 2.0, men should never cry or John Stockton is not the best point guard of all-time will receive an automatic ban. Just kidding. But seriously.
