Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says Dallas looked to lose as much as it could once the team was out of postseason contention this season.

“Once we were eliminated from the playoffs, we did everything possible to lose games,” Cuban said on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Wednesday.

Cuban said the primary way to ensure the Mavericks would lose was to play their young players, including Yogi Ferrell, Nerlens Noel and Dorian Finney-Smith — three players with less than three years of experience who averaged more than 20 minutes per game for Dallas this season.
