Mavericks' Nowitzki passes idle Net Garnett for 14th in scoring


Posted Nov 25, 2013 10:36 PM

DALLAS (AP) -- Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks has moved past Brooklyn's Kevin Garnett on the NBA's scoring list, at least for now.

The Dallas Mavericks star made two free throws against Denver on Monday night to take over 14th place on the all-time list.

Garnett, who didn't play Monday night, sits at 25,352 points.

Kobe Bryant is the only active player ahead of Nowitzki at the moment. The Los Angeles Lakers star, who is still recovering after tearing an Achilles tendon last April, is fourth all-time at 31,617 points.

Nowitzki, an 11-time All-Star and the 2007 MVP, has passed Jerry West, Reggie Miller and Garnett since Nov. 12.

The free throws that pushed Nowitzki ahead of Garnett also put him at 35 straight makes from the line.
