Dirk Nowitzki Finally Joins The 30000 Career Points Club

Seth Curry scored 22 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 18 points and 12 rebounds as the Dallas Mavericks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-89 on Sunday night.

He's won an NBA championship, the league's Most Valuable Player award, and now the forward is 20 points away from joining the likes of basketball greats: Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Wilt Chamberlin and Michael Jordan.

The milestone came at 10:55 of the second quarter when he connected on a jumper from the right wing over Larry Nance Jr. for a 42-30 Mavericks lead.

National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver paid tribute to Nowitski's achievement in a statement, hailing the Mavs star as "a model player and terrific ambassador for our game".

Rob, who recently split with Blac Chyna, has been on a bit of a tear lately in terms of posting sweet photos of his daughter. Kris's lawyers are way too powerful! "He is spending time with Dream , but never alone", the source said.

"Throughout his 19 seasons with the Mavericks, Dirk has been a model player and terrific ambassador for our game", a statement issued by Silver's office said.

And while Walton never developed a personal relationship with Nowitzki, from what he heard Nowitzki and Bryant shared one major characteristic that helped them reach the 30,000-point plateau.

Lebron James is the only active threat to Nowitzki's spot at No. 6. "This latest accomplishment further establishes his legacy as one of the NBA's greatest players". Every milestone makes you reflect a little bit. The Lakers outscored Dallas 37-19 in the fourth quarter.

Another empty trip for the Lakers preceded the icing on the cake as Nowitzki cashed in his third 3-pointer of the night to the continued roar of a packed house at American Airlines Center.
