Mavericks, Bulls look to bounce back from stinging losses

Before Sunday's matinee between the host Dallas Mavericks and Chicago Bulls begins, the teams must move past some recent sour endings.

"We straight up folded," the Bulls' Zach LaVine said of Friday's 127-125 overtime loss at Oklahoma City that saw Chicago squander a 10-point lead with 1:47 to go. "There's not a lot to talk about."

For Dallas, a 112-109 loss at Milwaukee on the same night seemingly turned as coach Rick Carlisle elected not to call timeout to set up a play with the Mavericks trailing by two points late. Kristaps Porzingis' contested 3-pointer with 10.4 seconds left was off the mark, prompting star Luca Doncic to react in frustration toward the team bench after Dallas fouled moments later.
