Dirk Nowitzki passes Jerry West on NBA’s all-time scoring list

nowitzkiDirk Nowitzki further solidified himself among the greatest basketball players of his generation on Tuesday night.

With about a minute remaining in the third quarter of the Dallas Mavericks’ game against the Washington Wizards, Nowitzki drilled a three-pointer to pass Jerry West for 16th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

That three game Nowitzki his 25,192nd, 25,193rd and 25,194th career points, putting him two ahead of West, who finished his Hall of Fame career with 25,192.

Next up for Dirk is Reggie Miller, who has 25,279. Unless he gets hurt, Nowitzki should take over 15th on the scoring list within the next month.
