Dirk Nowitzki double-doubled 28 minutes on Monday, shooting 8-for-18 from the field and 6-for-7 from the line for 23 points with one three, 11 rebounds and two blocks.
Dirk wanted to end the Mavs’ five-game losing streak and willed his team to victory over the red-hot Hornets. For owners that were worried about Dirk resting down the stretch, they have to be excited that the Mavs are heavily in the thick of the playoff race. Every Mavs game down the stretch will have playoff implications. Dirk’s third-round value doesn’t look to be fading anytime soon.
