Dirk Nowitzki played just 18 minutes on Saturday and finished with only two points thanks to a 1-for-8 night from the field.
Nowitzki added five rebounds and an assist but there’s no bones about this one. The Rockets are a terrible matchup for him at this stage of his illustrious career and the scoreboard meant there was no need for Dirk to log more minutes than necessary with Dallas’ schedule about to pick up. Nowitzki is just a low-end play who will be prone to disappearing acts.
