Nowitzki scores 29 as Mavs outrun Warriors

The schmoes were back and they were up to their old tricks. It’s just the Mavericks have learned a few of their own since last summer.

A multi-pronged attack led by Dirk Nowitzki’s 29 points trumped Golden State, as Dallas outran the Warriors 121-99 Wednesday night before 20,176 fans at a sold out American Airlines Center. The Mavs (21-11) have beaten last year’s playoff nemesis twice in two meetings this season.

“If we play like that all the time, we’re going to be tough to beat,” Devin Harris said.

Anytime the Mavs and Warriors lock horns, there’s a little extra something in the air. Just like when San Antonio, Phoenix or any of the other contenders come calling.

This doesn't erase the past. And
this is only one game, but it goes a long way in exocising some of Dirk's demons.

Great game, but I'd like to see them against a well-rested Golden State team at Golden State before I can truly say that they no longer have Golden State in their heads.
