Dirk Nowitzki remains 25/10 millenium man
|Dirk Nowitzki joins Galloway and Company to touch on the Rangers, his hair and his unusual Halloween getup (Martina Navratilova). Oh, and his Mavs' opening win, too.. |
Dirk Nowitzki's 28 points and 13 rebounds in Wednesday's season-starting victory over Charlotte marked his 196th 25-and-10 performance since 2000-01.
That's tops in the NBA in that span, as confirmed by the following Elias Sports Bureau list:
196: Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas
182: Tim Duncan, San Antonio
177: Kevin Garnett, Boston
166: Shaquille O'Neal, Boston
120: Antawn Jamison, Cleveland
PS: Jason Kidd's 18 assists in the win enabled him to top the 15-dime plateau for the 87th time since his rookie season in 1993-94, tops in the league in that span. Phoenix's Steve Nash and the retired John Stockton are tied for No. 2 with 79 each; New Orleans' Chris Paul is fourth with 45 after recording 16 assists in the Hornets' season-opening home win over Milwaukee.
