Mavericks making note of what could be Nowitzki’s final home game

Mavs making note of what could be Nowitzki's final home game

Nowitzki made a double-double (20 points, 10 rebounds), yet the Dallas Mavericks lost to the San Antonio Spurs (105-94).

"But, as you guys might expect, this is my last home game", Nowitzki said in the post game ceremony.

The 40-year-old showed his emotion during the game, fighting back tears just before action resumed at the start of the second quarter following a tribute video that detailed his holiday visit to a children's hospital. Marks grew up in the Dallas area, and says Nowitzki was his sports hero. The Mavericks will miss the postseason for the third straight season.

"I feel like everybody's focus went up a little bit because we understand what's right around the corner".

He was selected to the All-Star game 14 times and also earned the NBA MVP award in 2007 and the Finals MVP in 2011.

Dirk Nowitzki #41 of the Dallas Mavericks became emotional during video of his highlights before the game against the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center on April 10, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas.

Nowitzki went out firing, hoisting 31 shots - the most since he was in prime and gearing up to lead the only championship in franchise history early in the 2010-11 season.

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

Crawford set another feat Tuesday night, becoming the first player in National Basketball Association history with 50-point games for four different franchises (Bulls, Knicks, Warriors, Suns). "I still kind of got to focus on the game".

"Incredible player - had a great career; to stay with the same team". He has played for a total of eight teams across his career and has been named Sixth Man of the Year three times and Teammate of the Year once.

After Nowitzki drained the effort, Popovich could be seen standing and applauding.
