Despite losing to the Phoenix Suns, the Dallas Mavericks clinched a playoff berth for the first time in four years. Mavs’ legend Dirk Nowitzki was excited with the achievement.
“Mavs are back in the playoffs!!! Can’t wait. Let’s go!!!” Nowitzki tweeted. Dallas is currently in the seventh place in the Western Conference, but could still climb up the table.
They are 5 wins behind the second-placed Clippers, three games behind the Nuggets (3rd in the West), and 1-2 games behind the Rockets, Jazz and Thunder.
The next game for Dallas is tomorrow against the Kings.
