HOUSTON, Texas – Team is everything in Utah, and Donovan Mitchell proved a team can extend beyond a single sport.

In honor of slain University of Utah student Lauren McCluskey, the Utah Jazz player donned red shoes during the game against the Houston Rockets.

“Obviously, having a little sister, this one really hits with me because if anything happened to her I’d be devastated,” he told Deseret News’s Eric Woodyard.

Mitchell was impassioned, sharing how McCluskey’s story has touched him.

Social media was wholly supportive, with “Lauren McCluskey,” “Mitchell” and “Donovan” all trending Thursday morning thanks to Spida-Man’s gesture.

Mitchell’s performance during Wednesday night’s game probably helped those trends, too.
