Dirk Nowitzki hit a fallaway 18-footer as time expired in overtime to give the Dallas Mavericks a 115-113 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.
With 3.1 seconds left, Nowitzki caught a pass from Jason Kidd,
who finished a point short of a triple-double, and threw it up over
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. The ball rattled off the rim and
backboard, dropping softly through the hoop as the backboard lights
came on. The play was briefly reviewed, but counted.
Nowitzki, who finished with 32 points and 11 rebounds,
immediately untucked his jersey and celebrated with his teammates
near the Mavericks' bench.
Bucks rookie Brandon Jennings finished with 25 points, seven
rebounds and eight assists.
