Dirk Nowitzki admitted that back-to-back games are "still a battle for me."
Dirk logged 33 minutes against the Clippers Wednesday and then 40 in Thursday's overtime win over the Kings. "It felt like it was 80 [minutes], so I didn't really have much going for the team, but I kept battling out there," Nowitzki said. "My legs were heavy." The good news is that Dirk's knee continues to look healthy and the Mavs don't have another back-to-back until the end of February. He's trending up.
