Tim MacMahon: Maxi Kleber had a spectacular, crunch-time dunk on the Lakers’ Julius Randle, but the Mavs’ rookie is willing to concede the best dunk of the night by a Wurzburg, Germany native to Dirk Nowitzki. “Dirk fought himself up there and got him one,” Kleber said. “It was pretty fun to watch. I mean, I think the whole bench jumped up and cheered. It was crazy, because it’s what we usually only see in warmups. Not even in practice – in warmups. He saves them for warmups. That’s when he’s loose. It was pretty big time, him dunking it.” It was the first dunk of the season for Nowitzki, a 20-year veteran. “I don’t get a lot of opportunities around the rim obviously. When Kyle [Collinsworth] made that drive and dished it to me, I said, ‘Now or never.’ I went up there and flushed it, and it felt good, I gotta say.”
