DALLAS -- Dirk Nowitzki has 35 points in the game, 19 in the second half.
But the Bulls have the lead with 6:11 remaining.
Chicago completed its comeback from a 12-point deficit when C.J. Watson hit a wide-open 3-pointer. That came with Nowitzki on the bench, getting a quick breather before crunch time.
The Mavs are lost offensively without their MVP candidate. The Bulls are well aware of that, which is why they've started to double-team him with Joakim Noah whenever they get a chance.
Nowitzki responded with a couple of quick feeds to Brendan Haywood for easy buckets. But Nowitzki, the lone Maverick in double figures, will probably have to win this one with his jumper.
