Dirk helps Dallas overcome deficit

With his team down by as much as 24 earlier in Tuesday’s game against Toronto, Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki hit four consecutive threes in third quarter to put Dallas ahead. Nowitzki's game-high and season-best 32 points helped the Mavs' to a 105-99 victory over the Raptors. Teammate Devin Harris told the AP, "Dirk's stretch is what really put the game away for us." The win marked the franchise's largest comeback in regulation time. If you missed Nowitzki's phenomenal performance check it out right here on NBA.com.
