For the first time this season and only the seventh time in his career, Dallas Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki had 20 rebounds in a game.
In last night's loss to the Bucks, Nowitzki scored 21 points and grabbed exactly 20 rebounds.
Nowitzki now has double-digit rebounds in back-to-back games, which are also his first two games with double-digit rebounds this season.
The last time Nowitzki grabbed 20-plus rebounds was in December 2007 and that was the only other time he has had as many rebounds since the 2002-03 season.
In the past six games, he has also become a good source of steals for
fantasy owners. During that span, Nowitzki has a steal in every game
and a total of 12.
On the year, Nowitzki is averaging 16.2 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.
