link

Nowitzki led the Mavs to a 3-0 record, averaging 27.0 points on .462 shooting and 11.0 rebounds. Nowitzki recorded a double-double in all three games. Nowitzki also led the team in scoring in all three games and in eight of the nine games he has played in this season. In addition, he attempted 10-plus free throws in all three games.
Nov. 14 vs. Chicago: Posted a double-double of 31 points and 10 rebounds in a 111-99 win over the Bulls.
Nov. 17 at Memphis: Led his team in scoring with 26 points and tallied 10 rebounds and dished out five assists in a 115-103 win over the Grizzlies.
Nov. 18 vs. Memphis: Recorded his third double-double of the week with 24 points and 13 rebounds in a 89-84 win over the Grizzlies.
His best game of those three was definitely against Chicago. Dirk actually struggled at times in the two games against Memphis, and in my opinion had a slightly below average week by his standards. So below average Dirk was player of the week in the West - Congrats!
