Dirk hits milestone, ties Harper

Not that he'll remember Sunday night's start-to-finish blowout loss at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers, but Dirk Nowitzki did hit a career milestone.

The Dallas Mavericks power forward played in his 872nd career game with the Mavs, tying Derek Harper for second-most in franchise history. Nowitzki, assuming he remains in good health, will surpass leader Brad Davis (883) later this month.
