DALLAS -- With a day off Sunday, Dirk Nowitzki spent some of it watching the Elite 8 round of the NCAA tournament.
For a chance, he didn't even pick up a basketball.
It was an out of character moment for Nowitzki, who will lead the Dallas Mavericks (44-30) in their game Tuesday night at 7:30 at American Airlines Center against the Golden State Warriors (45-28).
"I usually don’t watch much college games during the year because I just don’t like it,'' Nowitzki said. "I’d rather watch pros.
"But there’s nothing like March Madness. There’s stuff and last-second shots and the seedings falling and the top seeds falling. There’s nothing like it.''
