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

Mike Wise

Dirk: "Obviously, I'm not going to play [Saturday]. I think that's no secret, and I'm not going to play the back-to-back next week."

Earl K. Sneed

Don't expect to see Dirk tonight vs. the Pacers. Dirk: "I almost played 30 minutes for the first time since probably May in Game 7."

Brian Schmitz

NBA season too long? (Yes, says LeBron and Dirk). My solution: Do away with preseason games. bit.ly/1vrwT99

Dirk won't play Saturday night in Indianapolis. I'll be totally shocked if Monta, Parsons, Nelson and Tyson play, either.

8-0 Cleveland run to open the 4th. Dirk is still out there, getting some good conditioning before sitting tomorrow in Indy. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Harris, Crowder, Aminu, Dirk & Smith open the 4th for the @Dallas Mavericks. Crowder is at the two. #DALatCLE

ANOTHER driving Chandler Parsons jam! He now has 14 pts, tying Dirk & Nelson for team-high honors. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

hahaha Dirk just stood flat-footed and blocked Dellavedova's three at the end of the shot clock.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk and Devin Harris return, joining Monta, Parsons and Chandler. But Kyrie puts the Cavs up on a drive to the hoop. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk commits just the @Dallas Mavericks' 4th turnover of the half, but Al-Farouq gets a defensive stop and goes coast to coast at the other end.

Earl K. Sneed

Young Al-Farouq is getting some valuable time with Dirk on the floor and B-Wright at center. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Preseason double-double watch for Dirk, who has 9 pts & 5 rebs after one. Nelson leads all scorers with 11 pts & Ellis has 9 pts. #DALatCLE

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on Dirk Nowitzki: "Really, there's never been a guy 7-1 that's done what he does, so he invented what he does."

Dwain Price

"He's an original, a one of a kind, a generation player. A guy like this comes around once every 25 years." - Rick Carlisle on Dirk Nowitzki

Bulls hit 44 minutes trailing Hawks 76-67. LeBron and Dirk say teams have played long enough and players now deserve naps.

Ailene Voisin

Nowitzki is right. Issue is back/back games, not the number of minutes per game. Days of back/back/back were insane - and commercial travel
