Current and former players congratulate Dirk Nowitzki on reaching 30000 career points

Doyle BarkerMar 09, 2017

Curry led Dallas with 22 points while Dirk Nowitzki added 18 points and Harrison Barnes scored 17 of his own.

As of Tuesday night, Dirk Nowitzki has dropped 30,000 points on the National Basketball Association, becoming just the sixth player in National Basketball Association history to do so.

The 38-year-old Nowitzki scored 18 points in the first quarter, and reached the landmark with a jump shot from the baseline with 10:58 remaining in the second quarter.

Nowitzki has taken over from Kobe Bryant as the National Basketball Association player most identifiable with one team, and Cuban has plenty for which to be grateful.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver released a statement regarding Nowtizki's achievement.

During the Mavs' championship run the following year, Nowitzki recorded almost 28 points per game in the postseason, including two 40-point performances.

"Twenty is a great number", he said last week in an interview.

Nowitzki led all scorers with 25 points on the night, as Dallas got all five starters scoring into double figures.

Nowitzki played in only six of the Mavs' opening 29 games this season after an Achilles problem.

"I think 20 seasons also with one team, like I'm trying to do it - I think only Kobe has done it - that's another great accomplishment". "Obviously, every milestone makes you reflect a little bit, reflect on people who helped you, been with you all this way, from all the coaches and Cuban and all the teammates I had, the fans that went with me through thick and thin".

"That's what I'm looking at". He hopes to finish his last season with no injuries and break more records approaching 40.
