Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell returned to game action Wednesday against the Dallas Mavericks after suffering a sprained ankle Saturday and reaggravating it Monday, and he was in fine form. In particular, Mitchell unleashed one incredible highlight, driving the lane hard against forward Luka Doncic (#77, listed at 6’7”) and dunking over both Doncic and Mavericks’ big man Maxi Kleber (#42, listed at 6’11”, eight inches taller than Mitchell):

Here’s a replay of that:

And here’s the full version of how this looked in the moment from photographer Russell Isabella (via USA Today Sports Images; a cropped version of this photo is seen at the top):

The Jazz wound up winning 117-102, and Mitchell finished with a team-high 23 points while adding seven assists, five rebounds and two steals. Not a bad night, and one where he produced some amazing highlights.
