Sim Life with ‘NBA LIVE 19’: Mavs at Hawks, 76ers at Bucks
Trae Young faces off vs. Luka Doncic; Joel Embiid pays a visit to the Greek Freak
Welcome back, LIVE fans. As the NBA has returned, and is off to a strong start, that also signals the return of the hoop version of Sim Life. Our first two games should be pretty entertaining, with the young’uns kicking it off. Dallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. and his new running mate Luka Doncic head to Atlanta to take on Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks (7 p.m. Eastern). The night caps off in Milwaukee as the “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo welcomes NBA LIVE 19 cover athlete Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers (9:30 p.m. Eastern).
MAVS AT HAWKS
Top things to 👀
- DeAndre Jordan is already making an impact in Big D.
.@deandre became the first Dallas player in 24 years to start the season with three straight double-doubles, scoring 18 pts & grabbing 16 rebs as the Mavs beat the Bulls 115-109!

- Which rookie will show out: Doncic or Young?
- State Farm Arena should be extra lit 🔥🔥

- Young is already among the greats.

Hawks 89, Mavs 74
Young finishes with a game-high 25 points; Doncic scores 10.
Jordan finishes with 16 points and 17 rebounds. DJ continues his double-double streak.
76ERS AT BUCKS
Top things to 👀
- The Bucks are 3-0 for the first time since 2005! Will they make it to 4-0?
- The Greek Freak is off to a ridiculous start to the season.

- The Sixers will be in a pretty bad mood coming off a loss in which the Detroit Pistons’ Blake Griffin torched them for 50 in an overtime win. It’s pretty much a guarantee Embiid will be ready.
Bucks 103, 76ers 91
Milwaukee moves to 4-0. The last time the Bucks started a season 4-0 was in the 2001-02 campaign.
Greek Freak gets his fourth straight 20-point, 10-rebound game.
Until next time!
Both games can be seen on ESPN and the ESPN App starting at 7 p.m. Eastern.
