Can you name the NBA's most reliable source of 25-and-10 games since the start of the new millennium?

PODCAST
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..

Listen Listen
Mavs fans get one guess.

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.
