Dirk Nowitzki Passes Moses Malone

Dirk Nowitzki’s trek up the list of NBA all-time scoring leaders continued on Monday night against the Brooklyn Nets. The Dallas Mavericks forward scored his 27,410th career point on a three-pointer, passing Moses Malone for seventh in the record books.

The Mavericks saluted the German star on social media:

Nowitzki finished with 15 points and seven rebounds in the Mavericks’ 96-88 win. After the game, Nowitzki’s response was predictably team-oriented, per The Associated Press, via ESPN.com: “I’m proud of it but more proud that we got the win.”
