Nowitzki Breaks Record



Devin Harris' homecoming was a story that lived in shadow of Dirk Nowitzki's accomplishment on Saturday night. While Harris, now with the Nets, faced his former team, the Germany-native scored his 16,644th point en-route to a 111-91 home court win. The Dallas superstar passed Rolando Blackman, who previously owned the Mavs' scoring record. Even more impressive, Blackman achieved the feat in 865 games, while the 2007 MVP reached the milestone in only 743 matchups. So, how did the achievement resonate with the seven-footer? He told the Dallas Morning News, "Ro Blackman is a friend of mine and he coached the German national team one year, so I'm really, really close to him. I hate to break that record and take it from him. But it's definitely a great honor for me."
