The Utah Jazz announced today that Jazz alumnus Darrell Griffith will make an appearance on Friday, Feb. 23 as the team takes on the Portland Trail Blazers in its first game back from the All-Star Break. Griffith, the first ever Jazz NBA Slam Dunk Contest representative in 1984 and 1985, will also participate in a pre-game recognition honoring Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell for winning the 2018 NBA Slam Dunk Contest at NBA All-Star Weekend. As a tribute to the former Jazz man known as Dr. Dunkenstein, Mitchell wore Griffith’s No. 35 uniform for one of his dunks as he jumped over his sister, comedian Kevin Hart and Hart’s son.
