Dirk Nowitzki‘s historic 25,000th NBA point yesterday came as so, so many of the ones before it had come, with a faceup jumper from the wing. With 6:45 to go in the second quarter against the New Orleans Hornets, Dirk squared up on Robin Lopez and buried a J in his face to vault himself into 25,000-point club as it’s 17th member.
