DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks no longer have to worry about that NBA play-in tournament. They are guaranteed a top-six finish in the Western Conference.
“That’s great. … When we were in the 12th or 13th spot, everybody had us out of the playoffs,” Doncic said. “But now we’ve made the playoffs. We’re going to have a couple of days off, and that’s what we needed.”
