Default Dirk Named NBA Western 'Player Of The Month'

Dallas (CBS 11 News) - The NBA announced on Friday that Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki has been named the Western Conference 'Player of the Month' for April. This is the fifth time in his career that Nowitzki has earned this honor, but the first time since February 2007.

During the month of April, Nowitzki led the Mavericks to six wins, helping the team clinch the sixth seed in the Western Conference of the NBA Playoffs.

Nowitzki averaged 30.3 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists during eight starts throughout April, shooting 55.1 percent from the floor, 35.3 percent from three-point range and 87.3 percent from the foul line. He scored 30 points in five outings and recorded two double-doubles.

In the team's regular season finale, Nowitzki led the Dallas Mavericks to a win over the Houston Rockets and the franchise's ninth consecutive 50-win season. The Mavs are only the fourth team in NBA history to reach this mark, behind the San Antonio Spurs, the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Nowitzki finished the season as the NBA's fourth leading scorer, putting up 20 or more points in the last 25 games. This was the longest streak in the league this season.
