Chicago Bulls vs. Dallas Mavericks 3/30/13: Video Highlights and Recap

Joseph Zucker@@JosephZuckerFeatured ColumnistMarch 30, 2013

The Dallas Mavericks hosted the Chicago Bulls in what was a pivotal game for Dallas in terms of the playoffs.

The Mavs have been playing very well recently and find themselves very close to the eighth spot in the Western Conference. When the Los Angeles Lakers got above .500 and clawed their way back into the playoffs, it seemed a foregone conclusion the Lake Show wouldn't leave.

Instead, Dallas' strong second half may very well pay off in spades.

For the Bulls, it's all about trying to get the fourth spot and home-court advantage in the first round. The eight playoff teams in the Eastern Conference are pretty much determined. It's just a matter of where those teams will finish in relation to one another.

Whose playoff position was strengthened on Saturday afternoon? You'll have to take a look at the highlights and find out.
