He may have not been on an actual basketball court, but Rui Hachimura must have still broken a sweat during his NBA 2K matchup with Donovan Mitchell on Sunday.

He needed a real-life water break - and even had some help from a waterboy.

Hachimura, the 13 seed, took on four-seed Mitchell in the NBA 2K20 PlayerTournament, and came out with a 74-71 victory.

The winner of the tournament receives $100,000 to go to a charity in support of coronavirus relief efforts.
