Donovan Mitchell throws pass off backboard to Rudy Gobert for the dunk!

We think he called glass.

Donovan Mitchell didn’t call glass, but he definitely knew that Rudy Gobert was running trailer. Donovan Mitchell pulls the defense in on this play, doesn’t even try to make the layup, and lets Rudy Gobert do what he does best: DUNK.

I’m with Mike Smith—who, by the way, is killing the play by play commentary tonight—who said he was sure that Donovan Mitchell meant to throw the pass off the backboard. Even if it wasn’t meant intended, we’re going to double down on this and stick with it.
