Dirk Nowitzki scored 24 points on 8-of-14 shooting (3-of-4 from deep, 5-of-6 from the line) with seven rebounds, two steals, and one block in the Mavs' 105-101 loss to the Hawks on Monday.

Nowitzki is starting to look like prior versions and owners should be cautiously optimistic about his outlook for the rest of the year. O.J. Mayo added 19 points on 9-of-20 shooting with two rebounds, one assist, and one 3-pointer in the loss.
