Dwain Price

Dirk, Monta and Parsons are 10-of-36 from the field.

Dwain Price

Dirk was 3-of-7 on FGs in the 1st half. He's 1-of-7 on FGs in the 3rd quarter.

Tim MacMahon

Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons are a combined 0-of-10 from 3-point range. Both have gotten good looks.

Earl K. Sneed

Let's see if that fadeaway gets Dirk going... #DALatHOU

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk is 3-of-10. Parsons is 2-of-7. Monta is 3-of-8. Not a lot going well for the @Dallas Mavericks' top scoring options. #DALatHOU

Tim MacMahon

Mavs' Run DMC (Dirk, Monta, Chandler) had 20+ points each last night. Combined for only 19 in first half.

Earl K. Sneed

Harden banks in a three to end the half and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 60-51 entering the intermission. 11 pts for Dirk/Nelson. 18 pts Harden.

Jeff Wade

I feel like that reaching call on Dirk on that clean steal was racist or jingoistic or something...I dunno

Jonathan Feigen

Papanikolaou checks in at the 4 with Nowitzki out. He said he played against Dirk in a Greece-Germany friendly, but they never matched up.

Sean Highkin

Dirk will probably be able to hit that left elbow jumper when he's 70.

Chris Sheridan

When comparing Dirk Nowitzki and Larry Bird, there really is no comparison. @whyhub explains why: sheridanhoops.com/2014/11/22/hub…

Dwain Price

With no Dwight Howard tonight for the #Rockets, this may turn into another game where Dirk Nowitzki won't have to play in the 4th quarter.

Tim MacMahon

Dirk has not played a second in the fourth quarter in 4 of the last 5 games. He's averaging only 27 minutes/game, by far lowest since rookie

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk on playing JET: "He'll always be like family. We went through a lot. We won a championship together, and I'll always remember that."

Daniel Senovilla

Nowitzki y Ellis usan la blitzkrieg para aplastar a los Lakers marca.com/2014/11/22/bal… vía @mpineiro_marca

Tim MacMahon

Why did Dirk take a discount deal? "I wanted to be on a good team. I wanted to compete my last couple of years at the highest level."

Tim MacMahon

Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki: Two directions es.pn/1v5RnUV Good look at two 36-year-old stars from @Baxter Holmes' LA perspective

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have been so efficiently lately that Dirk Nowitzki hasn't played in the 4th quarter in 4 of the last 5 games.

Jeff Caplan

Mavs been blowing teams out so regularly that Dirk is averaging a ridiculous 27 mpg and 19.4 ppg.

Earl K. Sneed

FINAL: @Dallas Mavericks 140, Lakers 106; season-high scoring output for the Mavs & 8 guys in double figures led by Dirk’s 23 pts on 8-of-10.

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Mavs 140, #Lakers 106. Dirk 23, Parsons 21, Monta 20, JJ 16 pts, Aminu 13 pts, Wright 12 pts, Jameer and Jae 10 pts each.

Baxter Holmes

Also yikes RT @Tim MacMahon: Mavs' Run DMC -- Dirk, Monta, Chandler -- has 20+ points apiece. The third quarter just ended.

Tim MacMahon

Mavs' Run DMC -- Dirk, Monta, Chandler -- has 20+ points apiece. The third quarter just ended.

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead after the 3rd period 110-83. Dirk has 23 pts, Parsons 21 and Monta 20.

Baxter Holmes

End 3Q: DAL 110, LAL 83. Kobe: 6-22 FGs, 17 points. Dirk: 8-10 FGs, 23 points.

Tim MacMahon

Mavs 110, Lakers 83. Still a quarter to go. I'd imagine Dirk (23 points, 8-10 FG) is done for the night, though.

Gary Lee

Dirk Nowitzki and Carlos Boozer can’t guard each other.

Tim MacMahon

Dirk would lead the league in scoring if Carlos Boozer guarded him every night.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with another feed to a cutting Parsons for the score. @Dallas Mavericks lead 77-67 with 7:59 left in the 3rd. #DALvsLAL

Gary Lee

Hey, that would be ideal. RT @TheeCoreyH: Hey Boozer…closing out on Dirk…kinda important...

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with the pretty feed to a cutting Parsons and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 72-63 early in the 3rd. #DALvsLAL

Mark Followill

Mavs shot 60% in 1st half and get 19 from Dirk. Mavs lead Lakers 68-59 at half on @FSSouthwest

Dwain Price

The #Mavs lead at the half 68-59. Dirk has 19, Jameer and Wright have 10 apiece.

Tim MacMahon

End half: Mavs 68, Lakers 59. Dirk: 19 points 6-8 FG. Jameer Nelson: 10 points, 4-6 FG, 4 assists. Brandan Wright: 10 points, 4-4 FG.

Mike Trudell

A plethora of early 2nd Q fouls put the Mavs in the bonus already. 2 Dirk FT's put 'em up 49-38. Dirk has 18 already.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk drills a three and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 47-36 with 8:50 in the half. 16 pts for Dirk on 6-of-7 shooting. #DALvsLAL

Bill Oram

With 5.9 left in first, Lakers trailed by six after Dirk FTs. A turnover and bad rebounding gave Dallas five more points to end the quarter.

Mark Followill

Mavs lead 38-27 after 1Q against the Lakers on @FSSouthwest. Dirk has 13. Mavs also scored 7 points in last 5 seconds of 1Q

Tim MacMahon

End 1Q: Mavs 38, Lakers 27. Dirk: 13 points, 5-5 FG. Kobe: 4 points, 0-7 FG, 4 rebounds, 5 assists.

Mike Trudell

Two big mistakes from LAL's bigs. Davis fouled Dirk 28 feet from rim (2 bonus FT's). Then Sacre threw an inbounds pass to DAL for an and-1.

Baxter Holmes

FGs — Dirk: 5-5. Kobe: 0-7.

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle calls a timeout as Jordan Hill scores inside. Dirk has a quick 11 pts, but Hill's 8 pts have the Lakers & @Dallas Mavericks tied 19-all.

Mike Trudell

Kobe has 4 assists already, feeding Jordan Hill for another jumper. LAL ball movement has been good, but Dirk's 3 evens it at 17 early.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with a three from near the corner...splash. This has been your Dirk (near) corner three update. #DALvsLAL

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with a patented jumper over Jordan Hill, but the Lakers take a 15-12 lead after that driving score by Lin. #DALvsLAL

Eric Pincus

Dirk is really an amazing shooter - doesn't matter if someone has a hand in his face

Gary Lee

Not sure if Jordan Hill or Dirk Nowitzki.

Earl K. Sneed

After a jumper by Boozer to open the scoring, Dirk gets the @Dallas Mavericks on the board with a layup. #DALvsLAL

Mark Followill

Lakers at Mavs now on @FSSouthwest. As noted earlier two top ten scorers on the floor tonight, Dirk #9 and Kobe #4

Jorge Castillo

Wizards start how they did Weds vs. Mavs: Gortat in the post. Like Nowitzki, they’re going to go at Love.
