In the first four games of the NBA playoffs, Dirk is averaging 16 points on .385 percent shooting with 6.8 rebounds. He has not scored 20 points in any of the Mavs' first four games, which makes the fact their series is tied at two against Los Spurs De San Antonio all the more impressive.
According to the Star-Telegram's Dwain Price, "The only other time Nowitzki has gone four straight playoff games without scoring at least 20 points was in 2001, when he failed to reach that plateau in the final game of a first-round series against Utah and in the first three games of a second-round series against the Spurs."
Whatever it is, if the Mavs are going to win, Die Mann has to return once or twice.
