Dirk Nowitzki will be turning 40 later this year, but he’s still got it, and he showed that in Thursday’s game against the Warriors.
Nowitzki faked out Draymond Green — one of the league’s best defenders — not once, but twice, with two beautiful shot fakes in the third quarter of the game. Then he calmly drained a jumper from the free-throw line.
Green went airborne twice on the play — and got no piece of the ball in the process. Meanwhile, Nowitzki came away with two points, and made it look easy in the process.
