Jayson Tatum is having a pretty good showing in Summer League for the Boston Celtics, but on Thursday night he got shook by fellow rookie Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell, a Utah Jazz draftee, took Tatum off the dribble Thursday night, and Tatum wound up on his back.
If you watch the video, Tatum gets up far too close to Mitchell (who is insanely quick) and is wildly out of position when he makes his spin move. Yes, their legs got tangled up, but only because Tatum was in an awful defensive position.
