Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic defeated Jalen Brunson in a streamed game of FIFA 20 on March 17 after a playful Twitter exchange between the two.
The Dallas Mavericks acquired two important pieces on draft night in 2018. They traded up to take Luka Doncic. The reigning Rookie of the Year took another step forward this season. He was an All-Star starter and MVP candidate in year two. The Mavs also drafted point guard Jalen Brunson in the second round.
Both players came from winning environments. Luka won the EuroLeague and Liga ACB with Real Madrid. Brunson was fresh off two NCAA championships in three seasons at Villanova. The two have helped the Mavericks turn around their fortunes in short order too.
With NBA action suspended, the two teammates have more free time. They are not even allowed to practice, so both have taken to playing video games.
Brunson has been quite active on Twitter lately. That cause Doncic to send out this tweet on Tuesday afternoon.
Luka dominated his teammate by a score of 7-3 in the game. He also posted a celebratory tweet after the victory.
Brunson is a big Eagles fan, so he will not be happy wearing Cowboys gear.
The 24-year-old offered another challenge to Luka. It will be interesting to see if the two go at it again soon. Doncic certainly got the upper hand on Tuesday night.
It was good to see the teammates interacting and having some fun. Both men have unexpected time on their hands. They cannot dominate on the court right now, so doing so in the virtual world is a welcomed sight.
