DALLAS – While Kevin Durant dominated, Dirk Nowitzki couldn’t even get the ball. Just look at the startling contrast between the two superstars’ lines during the fourth quarter of the Mavericks’ 107-101 loss Sunday night that further damaged Dallas’ dim playoff hopes. Durant went 7-of-11 from the floor in the final frame, torching the Mavs for 19 of his 31 points. Nowitzki was held to four points – all on free throws, not even attempting a field goal attempt – despite being 8-of-10 from the floor in the first three quarters.
