These are the only 6 players in NBA history to reach the 30,000 career points after Nowitzki hit his signature fadeaway jump shot over Los Angeles Lakers big Larry Nance Jr. in the Mavericks’ 122-111 win over the Lakers on Tuesday night.
Nowitzki hit that shot in the early stages of the second quarter to put the Mavericks ahead 42-30, and the Mavericks honored him with a video tribute following the next stoppage in-play. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Nowitzki’s teammates were the most emphatic about the moment.
The 38-year-old Nowitzki, who will turn 39 this off-season, is averaging 13.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game this season. Nowitzki is already on record for saying he plans to play the 2017-2018 NBA season.
