Dirk turns ankle, but is OK
After getting his ankle re-taped, Nowitzki returned with 7:20 left in the first quarter. But he shot just 3-of-14 from the field, scored a season-low nine points and admitted that his sore ankle hampered his play.
“I didn’t get any elevation on my jumper, but I was an expensive decoy today,'' Nowitzki said. "I was trying to just spread the floor for the guys and if I had a shot, shoot it, if not, move it.’’
