Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points on a night he
passed an NBA legend on the all-time scoring list, and the Dallas Mavericks
downed the Washington Wizards, 105-95, at American Airlines Center.
Nowitzki leapt over the great Jerry West for 15th place among the league's top
scorers and is 82 points shy from Reggie Miller's 25,279-point total.
The German sharpshooter had some help from his teammates in keeping the Mavs
unbeaten in four games at home. Monta Ellis added 19 points and seven assists,
Vince Carter scored 16 off the bench and Samuel Dalembert netted 15.
Trevor Ariza drained five 3-pointers en route to a game-high 27 points, but
the Wizards still suffered their seventh straight loss to Dallas.
