Nowitzki retires after scoring 30 as Mavs top Suns 120-109

Dirk Nowitzki's final game for the Dallas Mavericks finally came on Wednesday, as the Mavs fell to the San Antonio Spurs, 105-94. Following the matchup, Nowitzki informed the American Airlines Center crowd that it would be his final home game. "This is obviously super super emotional, there's too many people to thank".

Unlike Wade, Nowitizki kept his retirement plans under wraps until the Mavericks home finale.

The Spurs started the night with a video tribute to Dirk and when the public address announcer introduced him for the final time, Dirk shed some tears. Fans across the league saluted him with standing ovations when he visited their city, and he was greeted by a stream of adoring workers before the game. He added five rebounds and five assists in a 120-109 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

The Mavericks finished their season on the road Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs.

The 14-time All-Star gave the home folks the thrill of passing Wilt Chamberlain to regain sixth on the career scoring list last month.

"Wow. I'm a little overwhelmed, as you would think".

Britain's Brexit minister says: I don't want a long delay
Bailey, who is the Shadow Business Secretary, said discussions with the government will continue in the coming days. MPs have passed a legally binding motion to force Theresa May to seek a Brexit delay until at least June 30.

While the National Basketball Association universe was bidding farewell to a legend in Nowitzki, it was another veteran who was busy setting all-time records.

"It will never be the same around here", said Rick Carlisle, who coached Nowitzki for his final 11 seasons.

Crawford scored 51 points off the bench on 18-30 shooting, 7-13 from the 3-point line.

Nowitzki has played 38 games in San Antonio, tied for the third-highest total of any player. "I still kind of got to focus on the game".

Both players are legends of the game and Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant, who recently retired, had a message for them on his Twitter account.
