Dirk Nowitzki finished the game with 23 points and 11 rebounds for a double-double in a 100-98 loss against the Suns on Saturday.
Nowitzki scored 19 points in the first half but did not get the same amount of touches in the second. He added a three, two assists and only one turnover. Nowitzki is posting top-80 value over the season after playing well in his last 13 games, averaging 16.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 blocks. In this span, he places in the top-40 thanks to great percentages and low turnovers. The Mavs are only a couple of games behind the 8th seed so resting Nowitzki might not happen as expected when they were the worst team in the league.
