  • Westbrook, Thunder stumble again in 97-81 loss to Mavericks

    Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder didn't blow a lead this time. Dirk Nowitzki scored a season-high 19 points , rookie Dennis Smith held his own against Westbrook on the rookie Dallas guard's 20th birthday and the suddenly surging Mavericks beat the Thunder 97-81 on Saturday night. 'Everybody should be upset walking out of this locker room because you sure hate to lose,' guard Raymond Felton said after the team with the Big Three of Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George fell to 8-11.

  • NBA-'Revolutionary" Nowitzki suits up for 20th season with Mavericks

    Karl Marx is more likely to spring to mind than Dirk Nowitzki when thinking of a German “revolutionary”, but in his own way the 39-year-old from Wurzburg has changed the way basketball is played at the highest level. Nowitzki brought a new quality to the NBA two decades ago -- a big man as comfortable hitting an outside jump shot as banging the boards – and in doing so forced other teams to adjust the way they defended. Now preparing to start his 20th season, all with the Dallas Mavericks, Nowitzki is in the autumn of a career that will not soon be forgotten by aficionados of the sport, even if he has never quite penetrated the consciousness of the wider American public to a level of some of his peers.

  • Mavs Fan Slips Dirk Nowitzki Some Cash for ‘Taking Discounts’ to Help the Team

    One of the issues with the NBA’s salary cap is that it encourages players to take less money than they’re worth, allowing their teams to spend the extra cash on players they might not otherwise be able to fit under the cap. No one knows this better than Dirk Nowitzki, who’s making only $5 million in each of the next two seasons. “You been taking discounts the past six years to help the team bring talent and a title,” the fan wrote.
