Analysis: He finished with only seven points, one of the lowest scoring totals of his career. Averaging 17.1 points this season, Nowitzki is still a valuable fantasy player.
Mar. 19 9:40 PM PT10:40 PM MT11:40 PM CT12:40 AM ET4:40 GMT12:40 9:40 PM MST11:40 PM EST8:40 UAE05:400:40 ET10:40 PM CT3:40 - Nowitzki scored 25 points with eight rebounds in the Mavericks' 107-102 win over Orlando on Wednesday.

Feb. 12 9:16 PM PT10:16 PM MT11:16 PM CT12:16 AM ET5:16 GMT13:16 10:16 PM MST12:16 AM EST9:16 UAE06:160:16 ET11:16 PM CT3:16 - The Dallas superstar was named Wednesday night to fill in on the Western Conference All-Star team for New Orleans forward Anthony Davis, who has a strained right shoulder.
Analysis: The 36-year-old Nowitzki, who is averaging 18.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game and had 15 points and 14 rebounds Wednesday against the Jazz, went to 11 straight All-Star games before missing it in 2013 after he sat out the first 27 games recovering from right knee surgery. He went again last year.
Jan. 19 8:50 PM PT9:50 PM MT10:50 PM CT11:50 PM ET4:50 GMT12:50 9:50 PM MST11:50 PM EST8:50 UAE05:5023:50 ET10:50 PM CT2:50 - Nowitzki scored 21 points, including the last eight for Dallas in the final 2 minutes, to lead the Mavericks past the Grizzlies 103-95 on Monday.

Dec. 3 10:44 PM PT11:44 PM MT12:44 AM CT1:44 AM ET6:44 GMT14:44 11:44 PM MST1:44 AM EST10:44 UAE07:441:44 ET12:44 AM CT4:44 - Nowitzki scored 22 points and had 10 assists - his most since 2010 - in Tuesday's double-overtime win at Chicago.
Analysis: Nowitzki's 8-for-22 shooting night was disappointing, but the assists surely helped compensate for disgruntled fantasy owners. His shooting has finally regressed after his hot start, as he's shooting 41.2 percent over his last eight games. He hit 55.9 percent of his shots in his first 10 contests.
Dec. 3 8:15 PM PT9:15 PM MT10:15 PM CT11:15 PM ET4:15 GMT12:15 9:15 PM MST11:15 PM EST8:15 UAE05:1523:15 ET10:15 PM CT2:15 - Nowitzki sat out Wednesday.

Analysis: Dirk's 51.6 field-goal percentage is the second-highest of his career, so performances like Saturday's have been few and far between.

Analysis: The Dallas star finished with 23 points in Tuesday's game against Sacramento, passing Hakeem Olajuwon for ninth place on the all-time scoring list. The 36-year-old Nowitzki, in his 17th season with the Mavericks, is second among active players behind Kobe Bryant.

Analysis: Nowitzki has been especially efficient from the floor, going 33 of 57 (57.9 percent) through the first four games. He's a career 47.7 percent shooter.
July 15 2:20 PM PT3:20 PM MT4:20 PM CT5:20 PM ET21:20 GMT5:20 2:20 PM MST4:20 PM EST1:20 UAE (+1)23:2017:20 ET4:20 PM CT20:20 - The Dallas Mavericks have officially signed forwards Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons.
Analysis: The 36-year-old Nowitzki's contract is for three years and $30 million, with a player option for the final season. It's similar to the deal Tim Duncan signed with San Antonio two years ago. The 38-year-old Duncan recently exercised the option after the Spurs won their fifth title with him.

Analysis: A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday that Nowitzki would get a three-year contract worth roughly $30 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced. New contracts can't be signed until next Thursday. The 36-year-old Nowitzki is taking a big pay cut with a contract similar in value and structure to the one Tim Duncan signed with San Antonio two years ago.
