DALLAS Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was named All-NBA Third Team, the NBA announced today. It is the 12th consecutive season Nowitzki has been named All-NBA.

 

“It is an honor to make the All-NBA Team again,” Nowitzki said. “To be named among the best players in this league is always still very humbling for me. I also appreciate the opportunity to represent my teammates and the Mavericks organization on this list.”

This season, Nowitzki moved into the top 20 on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, surpassing Robert Parish and Charles Barkley for 19th place. He also ranks third in scoring among active players behind Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett.

 

In four postseason games againstOklahoma City, Nowitzki averaged 26.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 0.75 steals in 38.5 minutes.
