One of the newest faces in the NBA is representing Utah Jazz All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell.

Sure, it was just summer league, but Tuesday night in Las Vegas brought a much-anticipated matchup between the top two picks of last month’s NBA draft, Cade Cunningham of the Detroit Pistons and Jalen Green of the Houston Rockets, and Green wore Mitchell’s new D.O.N. Issue 3 signature shoe.

To take a page out of the Jazz’s slogan, Mitchell took note on Twitter of Green’s kicks.

Green and the Rockets got the better of Cunningham and the Pistons (who are being coached by former Utah Ute Jarred DuBois), winning 111-91.

Both Green and Cunningham were excellent, though. Green scored 25 points on just 11 field goal attempts with five rebounds, three assists and a steal, while Cunningham scored 20 points with four rebounds, three steals, two assists and a blocked shot.
