Dirk's record breaking 4th quarter saves Mavs

Dirk Nowitzki scored a club-record 29 of his 40 points during a frantic fourth-quarter comeback and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Utah Jazz 96-85 on Tuesday night.
Nowitzki broke the franchise record of 24 points in any quarter
set by Mark Aguirre against Denver on March 24, 1984.
Dallas was down 72-56 after Utah's Wes Matthews hit a layup with
9:51 left. The Mavericks then trailed by 13 before Nowitzki's
three-point play triggered a 19-6 run capped by his layup with 2:41
remaining to tie it at 83.
Nowitzki's inside basket on Dallas' next possession put the
Mavericks in front for good, 85-83 with 2:05 left.
Deron Williams scored 22 points and Mehmet Okur added 14 points
and 14 rebounds for Utah.
