The Dallas Mavericks are hoping to play basketball again this season. The NBA suspended play because of the novel coronavirus on March 11. There is no timetable for the league starting back up at this time, but there is optimism they will crown a champion this year.

Since play is suspended, the Phoenix Suns have been finishing out their regular season on NBA 2K. They faced off against the Mavericks on March 14. Fans can read more about that matchup here. Ultimately, Lawrence “Buddy” Norman used the Mavs to defeat Antonio Saldivar’s Suns.

The two men and teams had a rematch on Saturday night. Fans can check out a replay of the stream from the Mavericks Twitch.

The Mavs and Buddy earned the 115-91 win behind another stellar performance from Luka Doncic. He did not quite match the 54 points from the first game, but he dished out more dimes to secure the victory here.

It was a fantastic idea for the Suns to play out their remaining games on Twitch. They will continue streaming games. You can follow them on Twitter to see more.

Luka Doncic has been playing video games during the hiatus too. He defeated teammate Jalen Brunson in a streamed game of FIFA 20 on Tuesday.

Everyone is hoping basketball returns in short order. Please, everyone, be safe and smart during these trying times.
