Dirk Nowitzki did it again; this time with a headband. The 7-0 German power forward for the Dallas Maveicks hit another game-winning, fadeway jumper last night. This time the shot came over Boris Diaw with just 1.7 second remaining to lead the Mavericks to a 98-97 overtime win over the Charlotte Bobcats.
Nowitzki scored a game-high 36 points in the game, half of which came in the fourth quarter and the extra period. The final shot by Nowitzki was the final lead change in which the teams exchanged the lead six times in the final minute.
Nowitzki has now hit two game-winners in overtime this season – last night and November 16th, when Dirk did it against the Milwaukee Bucks.
