Donovan Mitchell’s heroic putback shot that propelled him to a historic 71-point game against the Chicago Bulls is now marred by an asterisk.

NBA’s last-two-minute report suggests that Mitchell committed a lane violation following his missed free throw shot that allowed him to secure the board and quickly tie the game at 130-all.

Mitchell’s clutch two-pointer allowed himself and the Cleveland Cavaliers to take away the 145-134 overtime win, with the All-Star guard feasted for 13 points.

The 71-point finish by Mitchell now ranks as one of the best individual displays in NBA history. His memorable scoring output serves as the highest since Kobe Bryant’s 81-point eruption over the Toronto Raptors in 2006.
