Utah Jazz Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles faced off in front of more than 50,000 fans but their camaraderie was apparent when they embraced in a hug prior to the exhibition game in Australia.

NBA TV captured the moment between the two professional basketball players before the warm-up game between Team USA and the Aussie Boomers.

Ingles was playing for the opposing team but Team USA with Mitchell as a shooting guard came out on top with a 102-86 victory.

Mitchell was responsible for 13 points in the game but there doesn't appear to be any hard feelings between the teammates.

Australia had a 45-44 lead early in the second half before Team USA took control and won the game. The teams meet again in Melbourne on Saturday.
