Nowitzki and Schröder cannot prevent bankruptcies
For the German stars in the NBA, things continue to be anything but smooth. For Dirk Nowitzki and Dennis Schröder it is the next defeats.
The Dallas Mavericks have lost the next possible victory in the NBA. The team around German superstar Dirk Nowitzki lost 106:114 (56:59) against the Brooklyn Nets away.
Like the day before against the Toronto Raptors, the Mavs did not finish ahead. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Texans had a temporary four-point lead.
Nowitzki, whose 1463 games against the Nets make him the sole number five in the NBA’s long running list ahead of Kevin Garnett, showed a good performance.
