Video: Dirk Nowitzki goes off for 40 points against New Orleans

He did it again.

40 points later, and Dirk Nowitzki is still the best.

It's the 19th time in his career he's scored 40 or more in a game. It's the fourth time in his career he's scored at least 20 points in a quarter, all since 2009: 29 in the fourth against Utah on 11/3/09, 22 in the third against Sacramento on 4/10/10 and 21 in the fourth quarter against Houston on 4/18/12.

15-of-16 from the free throw line is the most he's hit in the regular season since going 24-of-24 at Portland on 4/9/10. Of course, if you count playoffs, how could we forget 24-of-24?

Never leave us, Dirk. Please?

If that video just isn't enough, here's a few more videos of Dirk, both old and young, scoring a lot of points:

Dirk scores 40 against the Jazz on 3/3/12.

Young Dirk scores 40 against the Hawks on 1/15/02, despite Jason Terry's 46

Dirk's 42/18 night isn't enough against Duncan's Spurs in 2001 playoffs

Mavs fall to Utah in three overtimes despite Dirk's 40 points on 4/16/12

And how about Dirk's 48 against OKC in the title run
