Analysis: The 36-year-old Nowitzki's contract is for three years and $30 million, with a player option for the final season. It's similar to the deal Tim Duncan signed with San Antonio two years ago.

Mar. 12 7:48 PM PT8:48 PM MT9:48 PM CT10:48 PM ET2:48 GMT10:48 7:48 PM MST9:48 PM EST6:48 UAE (+1)03:4822:48 ET8:48 PM CT1:48 - Nowitzki scored 31 points and moved into sole possession of the No. 12 spot on the all-time NBA scoring list in the Dallas Mavericks' 108-101 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.
Analysis: The big German made 12 of 14 from the field and all four his 3-points attempts to help the Mavs snap a three-game road losing skid. On the first possession of the game, Nowitzki rained his trademark one-legged fade-away jumper, which moved him past John Havlicek for 12th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
Mar. 8 10:18 PM PT11:18 PM MT12:18 AM CT1:18 AM ET6:18 GMT14:18 11:18 PM MST1:18 AM EST10:18 UAE07:181:18 ET12:18 AM CT5:18 - Nowitzki scored 22 in Friday's win over the Trail Blazers.
Analysis: Though the points are still there - he's averaging 19.8 over his last six games - Nowitzki seems to be caught in a brief slump from 3-point range, going 3 for 19 in that same stretch.
Mar. 1 10:09 PM PT11:09 PM MT12:09 AM CT1:09 AM ET6:09 GMT14:09 11:09 PM MST1:09 AM EST10:09 UAE07:091:09 ET12:09 AM CT5:09 - Nowitzki was held in check Friday, scoring 15 in Dallas' loss to the Bulls.

Feb. 22 9:42 PM PT10:42 PM MT11:42 PM CT12:42 AM ET5:42 GMT13:42 10:42 PM MST12:42 AM EST9:42 UAE06:420:42 ET11:42 PM CT4:42 - Nowitzki scored 25 on 9-of-12 shooting in Friday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Nowitzki has been enjoying a strong stretch, averaging 24.5 points on 58.1 percent shooting over his last 11 contests. He had been shooting 47.5 percent on the season.
Jan. 27 9:42 PM PT10:42 PM MT11:42 PM CT12:42 AM ET5:42 GMT13:42 10:42 PM MST12:42 AM EST9:42 UAE06:420:42 ET11:42 PM CT3:42 - Dirk Nowitzki scored 28 points and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Detroit Pistons 116-106 Sunday night.
Analysis: Nowitzki was 10 of 16 from the field in his second straight game wearing a sleeve on his sore left knee. He scored five straight fourth-quarter points to put the game away.
Jan. 11 8:04 PM PT9:04 PM MT10:04 PM CT11:04 PM ET4:04 GMT12:04 9:04 PM MST11:04 PM EST8:04 UAE05:0423:04 ET10:04 PM CT2:04 - Nowitzki came through with a season-high 40 points to lead Dallas to a 110-107 win over New Orleans on Saturday.

Analysis: Nowitzki made 3 of 14 shots for a season-low eight points and that's not what you expect from a superstar of his caliber.

Analysis: The German star called himself "an expensive decoy" and said he rolled his ankle. It's hard to know what to make out of this for a fantasy owner.
Dec. 26 7:49 PM PT8:49 PM MT9:49 PM CT10:49 PM ET3:49 GMT11:49 8:49 PM MST10:49 PM EST7:49 UAE (+1)04:4922:49 ET9:49 PM CT1:49 - Nowitzki had 25 points in Thursday's 116-107 loss to San Antonio.

Analysis: Both missed the team's shootaround earlier in the day and were not at American Airlines Center for the game. Nowitzki has played in all 23 games for the Mavericks, averaging 21.1 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. He missed the first 27 games last season because of knee surgery. The Mavericks don't play again until Wednesday night, giving both some time to recover.
Dec. 8 9:49 PM PT10:49 PM MT11:49 PM CT12:49 AM ET5:49 GMT13:49 10:49 PM MST12:49 AM EST9:49 UAE06:490:49 ET11:49 PM CT3:49 - Nowitzki had 28 points in Saturday's 108-106 win at Portland.
Analysis: Nowitzki has now scored at least 20 in a season-high four straight games, a stretch during which he's averaging 24.3.
Dec. 4 10:20 PM PT11:20 PM MT12:20 AM CT1:20 AM ET6:20 GMT14:20 11:20 PM MST1:20 AM EST10:20 UAE07:201:20 ET12:20 AM CT4:20 - Nowitzki recovered from a rough start to score 25 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter, and the Mavericks kept the Charlotte Bobcats winless in Dallas with an 89-82 victory Tuesday night.
Analysis: Nowitzki, who was 1 of 10 from the field in the first half, and Monta Ellis took over late after struggling most of the game. They scored the last 19 points to help the Mavericks outscore Charlotte 29-15 in the fourth. Nowitzki finished 10 of 21 from the floor and is 20 for 34 (58.8 percent)in the past two games.

Analysis: It was a disappointing night for the Mavs and Dirk, who missed a jump shot with 18 seconds left that would have turned Dallas' one-point lead into a three-point edge. He's shooting 45.8 percent from the floor in five games since scoring a season-high 35 in a Nov. 20 win over Houston.
Nov. 30 7:15 PM PT8:15 PM MT9:15 PM CT10:15 PM ET3:15 GMT11:15 8:15 PM MST10:15 PM EST7:15 UAE (+1)04:1522:15 ET9:15 PM CT1:15 - Nowitzki scored 23 points in a 112-106 loss to the Wolves on Saturday night.
Analysis: Nowitzki is only averaging 20.6 points. That's a nice number but rather pedestrian for one of the legends of the game. Of course, he is 35 years old so that's the biggest factor here.
Nov. 28 9:16 PM PT10:16 PM MT11:16 PM CT12:16 AM ET5:16 GMT13:16 10:16 PM MST12:16 AM EST9:16 UAE06:160:16 ET11:16 PM CT3:16 - Nowitzki scored 22 points on 11-of-19 shooting in Wednesday's win over Golden State.
Analysis: Though Dirk is riding a 3-point shooting slump - he's 4 of 17 from long distance in his last six games - he's still averaging 23.3 points during that stretch.
Nov. 25 6:19 PM PT7:19 PM MT8:19 PM CT9:19 PM ET2:19 GMT10:19 7:19 PM MST9:19 PM EST6:19 UAE (+1)03:1921:19 ET8:19 PM CT0:19 - Nowitzki has moved past Brooklyn's Kevin Garnett on the NBA's scoring list, at least for now.
Analysis: The Dallas Mavericks star made two free throws against Denver on Monday night to take over 14th place on the all-time list. Garnett, who didn't play Monday night, sits at 25,352 points. Kobe Bryant is the only active player ahead of Nowitzki at the moment. The Los Angeles Lakers star, who is still recovering after tearing an Achilles tendon last April, is fourth all-time at 31,617 points.
Nov. 24 10:14 PM PT11:14 PM MT12:14 AM CT1:14 AM ET6:14 GMT14:14 11:14 PM MST1:14 AM EST10:14 UAE07:141:14 ET12:14 AM CT4:14 - Nowitzki scored 27 points and grabbed nine rebounds in Saturday's loss to Denver.
Analysis: He's averaging 26.7 in his last three games.
Nov. 21 10:14 PM PT11:14 PM MT12:14 AM CT1:14 AM ET6:14 GMT14:14 11:14 PM MST1:14 AM EST10:14 UAE07:141:14 ET12:14 AM CT4:14 - Nowitzki has moved past Reggie Miller on the NBA scoring list.
Analysis: Nowitzki made a free throw after a technical foul was called against Houston's Dwight Howard on Wednesday night to reach 25,280 points and take over 15th place. The 35-year-old Nowitzki is in his 16th season with the Mavericks. He is the franchise leader in every major offensive category. Brooklyn's Kevin Garnett is 14th at 25,340 points after scoring four in a 95-91 loss to Charlotte on Wednesday.
