It’s been a crazy night for Dirk Nowitzki. He got absolutely spun around by C.J. McCollum on this play:
That’s OK, though. He also scored the Mavericks five points of the game, including this game-tying tip in to send it into overtime.
Then he scored or assisted on eight of the next nine points. The add-on free throw of a an and-one after Dirk’s assist to Deron Williams.
The Mavericks ended up with the win. So, while you appreciate Nowitzki had the humility to laugh at himself when he got sent chasing after his own tail, the old man got the last laugh after all.
