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:
