Dirk Nowitzki shows signs of superstar life in loss

DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki finally looked like the dude who won the Finals MVP just a matter of months ago.

And the Mavs lost Friday night?!

“This season is rife with ironies,” coach Rick Carlisle said after the under-the-radar-contender Indiana Pacers walked out of the American Airlines Center with a convincing 98-87 win over the defending NBA champions.

The Mavs boarded their charter flight to Cleveland with a two-game losing streak as baggage and mad as hell — Shawn Marion actually used much more colorful language — but Nowitzki’s performance at least provided a silver lining to an otherwise ugly outing.

Ryan Wilson founded Mavs Fanatic (Now Dallas Sports Fanatic) in January of 2012. He had a vision of starting something new and different. A place where fans of the Dallas Mavericks and fans of writing could come and be heard. A blog "Run By Fans For Fans". He is also a fan of the Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago WhiteSox (His hometown team). Mavs Fanatic is now known as Dallas Sports Fanatic, a blog that covers all of the major Dallas pro sports teams.
