Nowitzki stars in likely home finale as Mavs top Suns

Nowitzki stars in likely home finale as Mavs top Suns

The announcement came after the Mavericks' 20-109 win over the Phoenix Suns.

Nowitzki, sitting at 31,540 points with one game left, gave the home crowd another thrill last month by passing Wilt Chamberlain to regain sixth on the career scoring list.

In what's been the worst kept secret in the NBA, Dirk Nowitzki is retiring. You guys always stuck with me and supported me.

Before the game, an extraordinary scene unfolded at the arena, as scores of Mavericks employees lined a parking garage to cheer the arrival of Nowitzki.

The 14-time All-Star got the farewell treatment on the road anyway, with opposing fans chanting "We want Dirk" and giving him standing ovations, and LA Clippers coach Doc Rivers stopping a game, grabbing a public address microphone and honoring Nowitzki.

Whistleblower: Trump White House reversed security clearance denials
It's about the security clearances and who can get them at the White House, who has been able to get them. Ms Newbold refused, and the third official ultimately left the White House, the Democrats' memo said.

The reaction was so visceral that Spalding, the polite and affable rookie who happened to begin the season with the Dallas Mavericks, brought it up inside the postgame locker room as he changed from Suns uniform to street clothes for the final time in the 2018-19 season.

After returning from his ankle injury, Nowitzki notched career lows this season in most major categories. It's expected that Nowitzki will pass on joining former teammate Vince Carter, who has said he plans to return for a record 22nd season. Bryant retired three years ago.

For Nowitzki, Wednesday's game at the San Antonio Spurs will be his career finale, but he gave fans in Dallas one last performance for which to cheer, in the process surpassing Michael Jordan as the oldest player to score 30 points in an National Basketball Association game.

"All the things he did for the NBA", Doncic said.

Crawford's 51 points are also the highest-ever total from a reserve.
