Dallas Mavericks 121, Oklahoma City Thunder 112
Sure, Dirk Nowitzki was the beneficiary of some iffy foul calls that seemed to emanate from a herd mentality from the referees. But that doesn’t change the fact that he went for 48 points on 15 shots, which is hilarious when you consider that 15 made threes doesn’t even equal 48 points. Incredible performance for Dirk who had me laughing the entire night because of his jab steb-jab step-pump fake-shoot some free throws possessions that would be immediately followed by jab step-jab step-no pump fake-hit a jumper possessions. It was almost mean the way he was working all the Thunder who tried to guard him.
