Dirk Nowitzki Gets Shooter's Bounce on Game-Winner Against New York Knicks

Alec NathanFeatured ColumnistFebruary 24, 2014

Dirk Nowitzki is a bad man. 

With the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks tied with 10.6 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Nowitzki received the ball at the free-throw line from Jose Calderon, sized up Carmelo Anthony, launched his patented fadeaway jumper and watched it bounce off the backboard and rim before falling through the net, giving the Mavs a 110-108 win. 

Nowitzki finished with 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting, helping Dallas win its third straight game.
