Nowitzki hit 10 of his MUT 18 Coins
Permalink  
 


Nowitzki hit 10 of his 13 shots from the MUT 18 Coins field for 25 points and added nine rebounds, and the clinic started early on. Dirk played the classics early and often. The spot-up three pointer from the top of the key. The one-legged fadeaway that we now see mimicked all over the league. The jumper off the pick-and-pop. It didn't matter who the

 

Lakers put on him.It's here that Nowitzki's genius was on full display. One his greatest strengths has always been the ability to dominate a game without having to dominate the ball. His decision making has always been quick and impeccable, with an adroit understanding of how to manipulate angles and spacing.

 

Lots of players can shoot, especially in today's game. What's always separated Nowitzki from the rest has been his combination of skills and smarts. The Lakers tried slowing him down by the slotting the more athletic Julius Randle onto him. In theory, that's a good plan.

 

Randle is quick enough to stay with Dirk and big enough to bother him, or so the thinking goes. The problem is that Randle doesn't usually guard a seven-footer who knows how to create space for a three-pointer by flashing off an off-ball screen. All night, Nowitzki used his off-ball movement to bend and destroy the Lakers defense.
