DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was chatting with the media after Monday's practice when the 11-time All-Star's mind wondered about his team's four-game home losing streak.
"I don't remember the last time I lost four home games in a row,'' Nowitzki said. "It's got to be a long time ago.''
Told it was about this time last year when the Mavs dropped four straight home games, Nowitzki smiled and said: "Yeah, I guess. That is a long time ago. That’s a year ago.''
The Mavs, indeed, last lost four straight home games to Miami, Denver, San Antonio and New Orleans from Dec. 20, 2012-Jan. 5, 2013.
