Dallas Mavericks star Kyrie Irving is coming off arguably his best game with the team. He dropped 40 points on 15 of 22 shooting from the field in a win over the Sixers on Thursday night as the Mavs superstar duo showcased their potential. Luka Doncic had 42, and Philly had zero answers in stopping them.

Irving and the Mavericks face Kevin Durant and the Suns on Sunday afternoon. It is an early noon CT tipoff for the first time the former Nets teammates square off. It is just KD’s third game with the Suns, but Phoenix won the first two as they look to push their way back into the top two in the West.

Expect fireworks on Sunday afternoon as Irving and Durant face each other. Add in the rivalry between the Mavericks and the Suns, including the recent Terrence Ross buyout saga, and it promises to be a cannot miss contest.
