Dallas Mavericks forward Justin Jackson is celebrating his 25th birthday on March 28. Check out the video his teammates put together for him.

The Dallas Mavericks are a tight-knit group this season. From posing for squad pictures to enjoying time together off the court, the Mavs seem to have a true bond.

They are a team nobody wants to face on the court either. The Mavericks are 26-14 when both Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis start this season. That includes the game against the Heat where Doncic injured his ankle less than two minutes in and never returned. Eliminating that contest puts them on a 55-win pace for an entire season.

Dallas Mavericks pitched in on Saturday to share a birthday wish to Justin Jackson and to show fans how long they should be washing their hands. See it below.

Jackson turned 25 on Saturday. The Mavs forward is in his third NBA season after playing three years at UNC. He averages just 5.7 points and 2.4 rebounds in 16.0 minutes per game this year. Jackson has seen his shooting efficiency take a step back. It caused coach Rick Carlisle to remove him from the rotation for a stretch.

Jackson needs to find his jumper if he wants to make the playoff rotation. The remaining regular season games could be most important for Jackson. He needs to prove that he can knock down open shots.

No word yet on when play might resume. Players are going to need time to ramp their bodies up. It will be interesting to see what the NBA decides to do in this unprecedented situation.
