Dirk Nowitzki Records 25,000th Point
Dirk Nowitzki had two reasons to celebrate Sunday night. The first was reaching 25,000 career points in the first half. The second was shaving.
Needing 10 points Sunday to reach 25,000 points, Nowitzki scored points No. 25,000 and 25,001 on a post-up 18-foot jumper over Robin Lopez with 6:44 remaining in the second quarter, giving Dallas a 43-27 lead.
Nowitzki, 34 years old and two games from completing his 15th NBA season, took a few moments to reflect. Milestones like Sunday’s will do that.
