Two bad shots from Josh Smith this quarter. A kickout triple and then...a Dirk-like, one legged fadeaway. Predictably short

Dwain Price

#Mavs on pace to score 40 points. That's a really good game for the old Dirk.

Dwain Price

Dirk Nowitzki was signing autographs and taking lots of photos with fans before the game behind the #Mavs' bench.

Earl K. Sneed

The number of selfies with Dirk in them might set a record after this game. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk & Parsons are now signing autographs and taking pics in the crowd. haha Yeah, they're definitely out. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk is posing for pictures with fans during the warmup line. Then Dirk, Tyson, Jameer and B-Wright stand off to the side. #DALatNOP

According to a survey by the NBA GM's, behind LeBron, Durant and Melo, Dirk forces opposing coaches to make the most adjustments.

Jeff Caplan

It might seem weird, @Dirk Nowitzki, but it's true: You'll soon be No. 7 on the NBA's all-time scoring list... hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2014/10/22/bel…

Earl K. Sneed

Ranking No. 1 on the NBA.com GM survey for the best international player in the league was none other than Dirk Nowitzki.

OK RT @Rnava28 - Skin, reaching on Kobe article as are all haters. Every1 wants to play w/ Dirk? Every1 except for DH, DW, CP3, LBJ, Melo

Jeff McDonald

Dirk Nowitzki won it last year, and I can't argue with that.

Frank Isola

Jose Calderon on Vince Carter blocking Dirk's dunk. "It was great...I'll text him later."

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk on quicker release: "It wasn't going to be running quicker or jumping higher, so I figured I'd work on something that I can control."

Earl K. Sneed

Expect a visit from Holger in the next week. Or as Dirk called him, "the professor."

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk on Vince Carter's block of his dunk attempt: "I told him it was a flagrant 2."

Chip Crain

Highlight of the night @Vince Carter with the block on Dirk http://t.co/Lh0XBydPU9

Earl K. Sneed

11 pts for Nelson & Parsons. 10 pts for Dirk & Tyson. Again, the @Dallas Mavericks' starters look pretty in sync. #DALvsMEM

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with a sweeping fadeaway over Z-Bo...and one! @Dallas Mavericks lead 65-55. #DALvsMEM

Tim MacMahon

Mavs just scored 57 points in first half vs. Grizzlies with only 4 points from Dirk. This team is gonna be an offensive juggernaut.

Earl K. Sneed

There's a group of German exchange students at the game with signs for Dirk. That's pretty cool. #DALvsMEM

Dwain Price

Dirk with the rifle pass to Jameer for a layup.

Earl K. Sneed

Aminu with a crazy and-one that gets a fist pump from Dirk. @Dallas Mavericks up 38-34 with a FT coming and 8:25 left in the half. #DALvsMEM

Michael Dugat

Why's Vince gotta do Dirk like that? That was a pretty funny moment.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk just got met at the rim by Vince Carter. Two (old) guys that still play (kinda) above the rim. haha #DALvsMEM

Dwain Price

#Mavs starters lead 15-10 before Devin Harris comes in for Dirk Nowitzki as the 1st substitute.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs' starting 5 of Dirk, Tyson, Monta, Parsons and Jameer look pretty good thus far.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk slipped on the court and no one knew what happened. He bounced back up OK and the crowd took a collective sigh of relief. #DALvsMEM

Eric Pincus

I actually like Ellis - like a lot of what the Mavs have done - like Dirk - just making a point

Eric Pincus

Dirk has a great reputation, deservedly so - did none of the top stars want to play with him last few years - why best get was Monta?

Eric Pincus

Can almost write the same article on the Mavs and Dirk if you want - would have same shaky foundation

Dwain Price

The #Mavs' starting 5 will likely start tonight against the Grizzlies and Thursday against the #Pelicans. Dirk won't play Fri. in Orlando.

Dwain Price

Other than Dirk Nowitzki playing tonight, coach Rick Carlisle wouldn't say who his starters will be against the #Grizzlies.

Dwain Price

"Its just unbelievable watching him. He’s a tremendous player, and just how easy things come to him." -- #Mavs F Charlie Villanueva on Dirk

Mark Followill

What a great game sealing drive ending with Dan Bailey making a 49 yd FG look as easy as Dirk shooting a FT

Michael Pointer

No Dirk Nowitzki tonight for Dallas. Really will have the look of an exhibition game.

Dwain Price

Dirk, Tyson, Parsons, Monta, Harris and Nelson will not play tonight for the #Mavs against the #Pacers.

Earl K. Sneed

No Dirk, Monta, Tyson Chandler, Chandler Parsons, Jameer Nelson or Devin Harris tonight for the @Dallas Mavericks. All resting vs. Pacers.

Mike Wise
