Mavericks Vs. Bulls Final Score: Dallas Lose To Chicago 93-83

The Mavericks nearly overcame a first quarter where they were outscored 31-8, but they ultimately lost to the Chicago Bulls 93-83. Luckily for the Mavericks they have already clinched a playoff spot and they are locked into the No. 7 seed.

Both Jason Terry and Jason Kidd sat out Saturday night's game to provide the two starters some rest for when the playoffs begin, and those two players effected the offense which played poorly Saturday night.

The offense for the Mavericks struggled on Saturday night by shooting only 39 percent from the field and 4-of-15 from thee-point range. Even with the poor shooting the Mavericks rallied in the fourth quarter and made it a two-point game with 4:30 left, but the Bulls ended the game going on a 15-7 run to win by 10 points.

Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks in scoring with 17 points.
