Depleted Mavs lose to Bulls, eliminated from play-in race


AP Sports Writer

DALLAS (AP) — Coby White scored 24 points and the short-handed Chicago Bulls rallied past the depleted Mavericks 115-112.

Dallas coach Jason Kidd said before the game an “organizational decision” was made to limit Luka Doncic to the first quarter while sitting fellow All-Star Kyrie Irving and four other regulars before the club was eliminated from the postseason. The Mavs led by double figures despite the move. But a rag-tag group that spent most of the season at the end of the bench couldn’t hold the lead in the second half.
