Nowitzki hits game-winner to rescue win for Dallas.
The Dallas Mavericks sealed a 100-98 win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, after Dirk Nowitzki scored a game-winning three pointer with 2.9 seconds left.
The Bulls appeared to be cruising to their fourth consecutive win with a 12-point lead with just four minutes remaining.
However, the combination of Chicago missing their last seven shots from the field and Nowitzki scoring 15 of his season-high 35 points in the fourth quarter, sent the Mavericks on a 15-1 run.
Despite the best efforts of Bulls point guard Nate Robinson, who hit seven straight three pointers, it wasn’t enough to hold off the Mavericks as they kept themselves in contention for a play-off spot.
