VIDEO: Dirk Nowitzki buries the Bulls with the game-winning 3

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

The Mavericks have had a hard time all season finding Dirk Nowitzki late. But in the last few games it would appear they're starting to unravel that mystery. Against the Bulls, Dirk scored the final six points for the Mavs, including the game-winner.

I'll take "Classic Dirk Nowitzki" for $500, Alex.

The decision to come off of Dirk by the defender is criminal. Yes, you want to help on Carter's drive, but you have other guys behind you. In that situation, no matter what the scheme dictates, you have to stay with the future Hall of Famer.

You don't, and that's how you wind up with a loss.

The Bulls fall into a tie with Atlanta for the fifth in the East, while Dallas stays one game back of Utah and the Lakers for the eighth spot in the West.
