Mavs’ Dirk Nowitzki set season high versus Knicks


Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki tallied a season-high of 14 points against the New York Knicks on Thursday (Manila time).

The Mavs, who dominated the game, ended with 114-90.

Nowitzki, in what could be his final appearance on the Madison Square Garden, was cheered on by the crowd when he went to the table to check in late in the first quarter.

Dennis Smith Jr. also had a great night tallying his second triple-double with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists for the Mavs. Harrison Barnes and Luka Doncic also contributed 19 and 16 points respectively.

With a 23-27 win-loss record, the Mavs will meet the Detroit Pistons tomorrow, February 1. (Janiel Abby Toralba)
