Dirk Nowitzki Nearing Full Strength
Dirk Nowitzki possibly turned the corner on his return from a knee injury in his fifth game back in the Dallas Mavericks’ lineup.
Nowitzki went 5-for-7 from the floor to score a season-high 11 points in 17 minutes.
“Today definitely was better,” Nowitzki said. “I was shooting the ball well in warmups, I felt I had a little more spring than I had last week.
“At least I’m working in the right direction, so that’s a good thing.”
“I think the biggest thing today is it was good to see that we got Dirk going for a little bit,” point guard Darren Collison said. “This team is going to be so much better and different once Dirk starts to roll.
