Mavericks staffers sure acted like Dirk Nowitzki is going to retire

Mavs making note of what could be Nowitzki's final home game

Nowitzki, who said his goodbyes to Mavericks fans in Dallas' home win over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, finished off his National Basketball Association journey with a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double, but could not prevent the Mavericks from falling to a 105-94 road loss to the playoff-bound San Antonio Spurs.

Nowitzki made a double-double (20 points, 10 rebounds), yet the Dallas Mavericks lost to the San Antonio Spurs (105-94).

"This is obviously super, super emotional, there's just too many people to really thank", he said.

It remains to be seen if Nowitzki will play in the Mavericks' season finale Wednesday night in San Antonio, but if Tuesday was indeed the last time we'll see him on the court, he went out in style.

The 2007 NBA MVP walks away from the game with the record for longest tenure with one franchise.

"The only guy that was missing was MJ", Nowitzki said, referring to Michael Jordan - the player he passed to become the oldest to score at least 30 in a game. "Felt nearly like a home game, honestly".

Waters then interrupted him, saying, "Please do not instruct me as to how I am to conduct this committee". Trump's position has always been that he is under audit and therefore could not release his returns.

The Dallas Mavericks rookie earned the final Western Conference Rookie of the Month for March and April.

Spurs: Bryn Forbes finished with 10 points in 26 minutes. Nowitzki is sixth on the NBA's All-Time scoring list and entered Tuesday with 31,510 points in a career that has spanned two decades.

Nowitzki is a 14-time All-Star and a 12-time All-NBA team member.

Doncic, who turned 20 in February, averaged team highs of 22.1 points, 9.9 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 32.1 minutes in 15 games during in the final stretch of the season. He made many unpublicized trips to the hospital over the years.

Popovich added Nowitzki was a "fierce competitor that never wavered at any time in his career".
