Nowitzki piled up the points in the final quarter as the 76ers slipped to a 92-86 defeat which left them at 0-11, the only team in the NBA without a win.

The Mavericks were well below their best, with Nowitzki missing 10 of 16 attempts from the floor.

But it was good enough to edge out the 76ers, who have already faced accusations from disgruntled fans that they have thrown in the towel with the new season barely three weeks old.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said despite the 76ers’ modest roster wholesale jerseys, they had been awkward opponents.

“This is a hard team to get good shots against,” Carlisle said. “They have young, motivated guys on small contracts. They’re playing their [butts] off. It’s good to see from a competitive standpoint but it makes it hard to get shots.”

Nowitzki was also generous in victory. View gallery Brandon Knight #3 of the Phoenix Suns attempts to control the ball under pressure from Larry Nance J …

“They kept staying in the game, clawing and scratching and they’re obviously desperate to get their first win,” Nowitzki said. “We had to dig deep and grind it out.”

Nevertheless the stats don’t lie and Philadelphia is now in the grip of a desperate losing streak.

Including the tail-end of last season, the 76ers have now cheap nba jerseys slumped to 21 straight defeats, just five shy of the all-time record for longest losing streak in NBA history — which the 76ers themselves share with the Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys.

Sixers coach Brett Brown bemoaned his team’s high turnover total — 27 — which resulted in 28 Dallas points.

“You’re not going to win any basketball games with 27 turnovers,” Brown said.

Sixers rookie center Jahlil Okafor, who contributed 19 points, insists the team was close to turning a corner.

“We’re on the right path,” Okafor said. “We see the bigger picture, and I really believe that it’s all going to add up, and we’re definitely right there.”

In other matches on Monday, the Los Angeles Lakers’ disappointing start to the season continued with the team crashing 120-101 at Phoenix.

The Suns guard Brandon Knight recorded the first triple-double of his career with 30 points as the Lakers faded in the fourth quarter.

The Lakers rested veteran Kobe Bryant and had kept pace with the Suns until the fourth quarter, when Phoenix broke clear with world cup jerseys cheap a 21-8 scoring run to settle the contest.

In Texas, the San Antonio Spurs Jerseys recorded their fifth straight victory with a 93-80 win over the Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys.

Forward Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points while veterans Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker both contributed key shots at pivotal moments of the match.

Ginobili finished with 17 points while Parker and Tim Duncan scored 10 points each.Sports & RecreationBasketballDirk NowitzkiPhiladelphia 76ers JerseysDallas Mavericks JerseysNBAThe Mavericks

Kobe Bryant turns back the clock with 31 points, big buckets in Lakers win

jerseys for cheap

Kobe Bryant’s Sunday retirement announcement changed the atmosphere around his season considerably, turning an awful and sometimes unwatchable set of performances into a mostly positive farewell tour. Opposing teams can now celebrate his accomplishments and act as if the Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys icon is a universally beloved figure and not the most divisive player of his generation. There’s something a little odd and maybe a little disingenuous about the whole thing, especially since Kobe himself wants us to appreciate the beauty in the pain of the experience, but it’s admittedly been nice to look back on everything that he has accomplished. We are dealing with one of the greatest players ever, after all.

Yet Kobe’s final visit to the Washington Wizards Jerseys on Wednesday offered something new and unexpected for him this season ?a legitimately good game. Bryant scored a Lakers season-high 31 points on 10-of-24 from the field (including 4-of-11 from long range) in 36 minutes to propel Los Angeles to a 108-104 win, just its third in 18 tries. Take a look at his night here:

The last two buckets stand out more than any others. Down 99-98 with around a minute remaining in regulation, Kobe used a pick to free up just enough space to launch a long three-pointer to give the Lakers the lead. Marcin Gortat laid the ball in off a John Wall assist on the next possession to tie it back up, but Bryant answered by taking Bradley Beal one-on-one and burying a fadeaway over him late in the shot clock. A subsequent Wall turnover made it a free-throw contest in the final seconds, and the Lakers hit enough to withstand a minor rally.
To be clear, this Kobe performance was not dominant so much as in line with an average game from the days when he was the most feared scorer in the league. But that’s an accomplishment in itself during a season that has Bryant as one of the least efficient and most ball-dominant players in the league. Plus, younger players like Julius Randle (15 points and 19 rebounds) played well enough to help the Lakers bounce back from giving the Philadelphia 76ers Jerseys their first win of the season on Tuesday.

The news was not so great for the Wizards, who followed a potential return to form in a Tuesday win over the Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys by losing at home to one of the worst teams in the league. Wall had a reasonably good night with 34 points on 11-of-19 shooting and 11 assists, but he also controlled an offense that turned it over 23 times for 33 Lakers points. They still need a lot of help.
