DALLAS _ Dirk Nowitzki is just three points away from becoming the 23rd player in NBA history to score at least 23,000 points.
And Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry believes there’s a very good chance Nowitzki will reach that milestone against the Milwaukee Bucks, who the Mavs host at 7:30 tonight at American Airlines Center.
“Hopefully he’ll gets it tonight, and that means we’ll have a great chance to win,’’ Terry said after this morning’s shoot around. “It’s a big number.
“Big numbers just mean he’s been in the league awhile and been putting in a lot of hard work. It’s another milestone he should continue to hit as he continues to grow throughout his career.’’
Earlier this season, Nowitzki reached two other milestones when he scored his 8,000th career field goal and played in his 1,000th career game.
