  • Mavericks staffers sure acted like Dirk Nowitzki is going to retire

"I'm going to try to play a little bit tomorrow and still enjoy and hoist a few jumpers", said Nowitzki, who had 30 points on 31 shots in 33 minutes in a 120-109 win over Phoenix.

Spurs fans showed plenty of love to the 40-year-old future Hall of Famer, and he said it "felt nearly like a home game". "This is obviously super super emotional, there's too many people to thank".

Following a mid-range, fadeaway jumper, Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki checked out of the game for the final time in his 21-year career.

Charles Barkley, Scottie Pippen, Larry Bird, Shawn Kemp, and Detlef Schrempf - all players who inspired Nowitzki - attended the on-court ceremony.

Before Dirk's final game the Spurs played him one final tribute video of all the incredible moments he had in his career against them. He was later paid back for his victory when Dirk's 2011 Mavericks spoiled the inaugural season of Miami's Big Three when he claimed his sole title. Fans across the league saluted him with standing ovations when he visited their city, and he was greeted by a stream of adoring workers before the game.

And she did, just like we knew she would. "And for LC (Cox), she got us here, and we had to finish the job for her". Arike Ogunbowale sat in a quiet Notre Dame locker room, and there were no tears from the senior.

It would have been hard to know that, though, from the festivities leading into the contest, which the Mavs billed as a "41.21.1" event, referring to Nowitzki's jersey number, as well as time spent in the National Basketball Association.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 34 points and 16 rebounds and the Spurs beat the Dallas Mavericks 105-94 Wednesday night in Nowitzki's final game.

"I was so happy for Dirk", Carlisle said.

Not only did Crawford become the oldest player to put up 50-plus, but he also became the first player to post 50-point games for four different franchises, per ESPN Stats & Information. He was the first player that big to be a legitimate threat at the 3-point line. "Hopefully, I got a good photo op".
