3 of Dirk’s best performances from this season

New, comments

Dirk gave us plenty of good games this season, but here are three of his best.

Hey, It’s June! There’s not much going on at the moment, so what the heck, let’s talk about Dirk. It’s never too early to reminisce, so here are three of his best winning performances from this season.

Before we start, let’s get one thing straight: Dirk had way more than three good games this year, but as I searched through the Mavericks’ wins, these are the performances that stood out.

Vs Oklahoma City Thunder

March 5, 2017
104-89

In just over 30 minutes, Dirk scored a cool 18 points while grabbing 13 rebounds and three assists. The Mavericks controlled the game from start to finish, and everything just seemed to come easy to Nowitzki, who ended the game with a plus-26 shooting 47.1 percent from the field.

Vs Los Angeles Lakers

March 7, 2017
122-111

Of course we have to include this one. This game is plenty of fans’ favorite of the season for obvious reasons. Dirk was absolutely on fire, hitting his first six shots of the game and finishing the first quarter with 18 points. He only played 24 minutes, but ended up with 25 points, 11 rebounds and a plus-13. Oh yeah, and he passed the 30,000 career point total.

@ Brooklyn Nets

March 19, 2017
111-104

Dirk waltzed onto the floor in Brooklyn, played just over half the game, and finished with 23 points and nine rebounds. In true Nowitzki fashion, he was incredibly efficient, getting those points in nine field goals on 52.9 percent shooting.

Here’s to Dirk giving us more memorable games next season... and the next... and the next...
