Dirk Nowitzki had one of his best statistical games of the year in a not-so-close loss to the Wizards tonight. It was his second 30-point game of the year. The Mavericks are now 119-35 all-time (including playoff games) when Dirk scores at least 30 points. Last season, the Mavs were 19-1 when Dirk scored at least 30, and that one loss was the double overtime thriller against Phoenix on March 14.
