DIRK NOWITZKI wasn't expecting to play much during his season debut Sunday night against the San Antonio Spurs. Still, after missing the Dallas Mavericks' first 27 regular-season games, he didn't expect to take a seat on the bench after 20 minutes with the game completely out of hand. "In the middle of the third we were down by 80, so I didn't really have to go back in," Nowitzki said, exaggerating the Mavs' largest deficit just a bit. Danny Green scored a career-high 25 points and the Spurs spoiled Nowitzki's season debut with a 129-91 rout of the visiting Mavericks.

Kobe Bryant was just a little better than Dirk Nowitzki in a spirited game befitting Western Conference leaders - not teams battling for ninth place in the Western Conference. Bryant had 38 points to win a scoring duel with Nowitzki, and Steve Nash helped beat his former team by scoring 20 points for the first time with the Los Angeles Lakers in a 103-99 win Sunday against the Mavericks in Dallas. Nowitzki, who missed the first 27 games following knee surgery, finished with a season-high 30 points and 13 rebounds in a game that had a playoff feel from the start, even though both teams still have plenty of ground to make up to even qualify for the postseason.

DIRK NOWITZKI grabbed a loose ball in the backcourt and started the fast break himself, pulling up for a three-pointer just like the days before his first knee surgery. The difference this time: The Dallas Mavericks star threw up an airball. Nowitzki will need more time to work his way back from a surgery that cost him the first 27 games of the season. Even then, it may not be enough to keep up with the San Antonio Spurs and their Big Three. Tony Parker had 21 points and nine assists, Manu Ginobili had several key baskets among his 20 points and the Spurs handed the Mavericks their sixth straight loss, 111-86, on Sunday night.

One second before it went quiet, the Wachovia Center sounded its loudest. Because it felt so wrong - on Dirk Nowitzki's falling-back, 17-footer at the buzzer - and because it felt like the opposite of how things have gone lately for their 76ers, most of the fans stayed, watching referee Dick Bavetta double-check the replay on a sideline monitor. But there was no doubt: The shot was good, released from Nowitzki's right hand with about a second left on the clock. When it landed, the Dallas Mavericks had beaten the Sixers, 95-93.

The second makeover of the Dallas Mavericks in as many years just got tougher. Star forward Dirk Nowitzki had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday and the 11-time all-star isn't expected to return for about six weeks. Dallas opens the regular season in 11 days at the Los Angeles Lakers. "It's never going to be easy to lose a game-changer for six weeks," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. The 34-year-old Nowitzki has experienced swelling in the knee most of the preseason, twice having the knee drained since training camp started Sept.

Dirk Nowitzki said that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were "a little childish, a little ignorant" in a video that appears to show them mocking the Mavericks star's recent illness. Wade and James blamed the media for trying to make a big deal out of it. The video taken by the CBS affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth shows Wade walking alongside James following a shootaround the morning of Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Wade coughs, then says, "Did you hear me cough? Think I'm sick. " Nowitzki was coughing and sniffling throughout Game 4 because of a sinus infection that also left him with a 101-degree fever.

Nelson is back All-star point guard Jameer Nelson returned to the Orlando Magic's lineup last night in a 104-99 victory over Utah. The former St. Joseph's star played nearly 14 minutes as a reserve, scoring two points. Nelson had not played since he had surgery Nov. 18 to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. He practiced for the first time in about a month Sunday. He was averaging 13.7 points and 5.5 assists before he was hurt. He also bounced back from surgery last season.

Dirk Nowitzki is not expected to play in tonight's Game 6 of the Western Conference finals, Dallas coach Don Nelson said yesterday. "I'd say very doubtful is the way we have to approach it, but let's still wait and see," Nelson said. "If he can't play his normal rotation, I don't think he should play. " Nowitzki said he planned to rest his sprained left knee until a pregame shootaround. The San Antonio Spurs lead the series by 3-2 and can advance to the NBA Finals with a victory tonight (9 o'clock, TNT)

NEW YORK - Sometimes at an NBA All-Star Game, you will see something you haven't before. Though the lack of defense is always a given, some things are not. That came in a few forms last night at Madison Square Garden. Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook scored a record 27 points in the first half, eclipsing the mark of 24 in one half set by Glenn Rice in 1997 and Kyrie Irving last season. Westbrook finished the game with 41 points, leading the West to a 163-158 win. The record for points in a game, 42, was set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962.

BRETT BROWN is no stranger to the game of Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki. As an assistant with the San Antonio Spurs, Brown has seen more Nowitizki exploits than he cares to remember, both during the regular season and playoffs. On Tuesday, with his 23 points, the 17-year vet from Germany surpassed Hakeem Olajuwon on the NBA scoring list to become the highest scorer born outside of the United States. His 26,953 points rank him No. 9 on the all-time list. He has scored 19,452 more points than the entire roster that will be available for Brown tonight when 76ers face the Mavs.

DALLAS - The 76ers would rather not have lingering thoughts of Friday's 37-point road loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. They just want to learn from it and move on to their next opponent. "It's life in the NBA," said coach Brett Brown, whose squad has lost six of their last eight games. "You've got to back it up. We go down to Dallas. We've got to stay healthy. We've got to take care of our bodies. They are a good team. "You know we caught [the Pelicans] when they were hot. Ryan Anderson [who had game-highs of 26 points and six three-pointers]

Anthony, who didn't make a basket in the fourth quarter of either game in Indiana, made a jumper midway through the final quarter last night after Indiana closed within four points.
