The Aftermath of Mavericks 120, Jazz 102: This offense is RED HOT FIRE

Aftermath's back and GIF-ier than ever. The aftermath Eight straight makes to open the game, 55 percent shooting for the game, approximately half a billion alley oop dunks. While we should acknowledge that Utah doesn't have a fearsome defense, the Mavericks simply looked dominant from the first second of the game. This offense is straight fire. Dirk Nowitzki looks fantastic early on. Sure, he's started the 16-of-24 from the field, but even more impressive to me is his cross court passing. Constantly the focal point of opposing defenses, Nowitzki is seeing the floor so well and, without...

NBA results, Oct. 30

LeBron James struggled from the start in his first game with the Cavaliers in four years, and the Knicks ruined the megastar’s emotional homecoming with a 95-90 victory Thursday night. James, who returned to the Cavs and his native Ohio this summer after winning two NBA titles in Miami, finished with 17 points on 5-of-15 shooting. Dirk Nowitzki scored 21 points and Dallas won its home opener in the return of two key pieces from the franchise’s only championship team in 2011. ... Center Tyson Chandler, who left via free agency for New York shortly after serving as the emotional leader...

Dirk Nowitzki scores 21 points in 24 mins. - Dirk Nowitzki (F) Dallas Mavericks

Dirk Nowitzki was his usual efficient self against the Jazz on Thursday with 21 points on 9-of-13 from the field to go with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-poitners.

Mavericks make beautiful music vs. Jazz

DALLAS -- The Run DMC video that played on the American Airlines Center jumbotrons during the first quarter of Thursday's home opener was a fun, witty way to feature the Dallas Mavericks' three most explosive scorers. No doubt that Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis and Chandler Parsons form a fine trio. But Funkadelic would be a better fit if you want to go back decades to find a musical group that sums up the Mavs. So much depth. So much variety. Such creativity.

Nowitzki: Job is to spread floor for Mavs

DALLAS -- Ideally, Dirk Nowitzki would be an elite complementary player at this point of his career. In other words, Nowitzki would remain one of NBA's most efficient shooters but be relied on by the Dallas Mavericks less than ever. Nowitzki, 36, who is in his 17th NBA season, believes that's possible after the moves the Mavs have made the past couple of summers. The Dallas roster has plenty of playmakers in Monta Ellis, Jameer Nelson, Chandler Parsons, Devin Harris, Raymond Felton and the addition of J.

Chandler Parsons hopes to help childhood idol Dirk Nowitzki win title

DALLAS -- Chandler Parsons distinctly remembers walking into the home locker room at the Toyota Center in late March 2012 and checking the Houston Rockets' defensive matchups to start that night's game against the Dallas Mavericks. The rookie played it cool in front of coaches and teammates when he saw "PARSONS-NOWITZKI" on the board, but he couldn't help but share the moment with a couple of his childhood buddies, guys who played with Parsons when he wore a green No.

Dirk Nowitzki: If opening at S.A. “doesn’t get your blood boiling, then I might at well retire”ithen I might as well retire

As has been the case for most if not all of his 17 seasons, Dirk Nowitzki on Monday spent the 30 minutes of his final full practice before the season opener working individually with his mentor, Holger Geschwindner. Moments later, …

Can Holger help Chandler Parsons? Dirk thinks so

DALLAS – Holger Geschwindner, the mentor and shot doctor who molded Dirk Nowitzki from a gangly teenager to a top-10 all-time scorer, has arrived for his customary early-season visit. Geschwindner’s flight from Germany landed on Sunday afternoon. He spent the evening with Nowitzki on the Dallas Mavericks' practice court, putting his prized pupil through a shooting session that is a nightly ritual during Geschwindner’s three-times-per-season visits.

Dirk milestone watch: Nowitzki projected to finish year seventh all time in scoring

The Big German sits no. 10 in scoring all time, ever, in the history of the sport. And he ain't done yet. By Andrew Kreighbaum With a team that wasn't anywhere near title contention the past two seasons, Dirk Nowitzki's ascension of the NBA career scoring list -- eventually reaching tenth all time last season -- was a significant storyline. Mavs fans can look forward to watching a much improved roster this year but that won't stop us from talking about the milestones Dirk is likely to reach in his seventeenth season. Heading into the new season with 26,786 points, he sits 160 points behind...

Recent talk among NBA stars about shortening the season and/or shortening the games themselves is an insult to everyone who played the game before them. Somewhere, Hall of Famer Elgin Baylor is already rolling over in his future grave. Responding to the NBA's "experiment" with a 44-minute game during the preseason, NBA superstar LeBron James recently suggested that the NBA play less regular season games than less minutes per game, and his fellow superstar Dirk Nowitzki soon after concurred, going as far as to say that the number of games played in an NBA season should be cut into the...

The bench players and training camp invitees...
