Dirk Nowitzki set to make season debut on Thursday for Dallas Mavericks

Dirk sets NBA record in debut

Nowitzki's season was delayed because of a longer than expected recovery from left ankle surgery in April.

The Dallas Mavericks (15-12) suffered the loss to the Phoenix Suns (5-24) on the road (89:99) and ended a 3-game winning streak.

Nowitzki will be playing in his 21st season, all with Dallas, and he will set a record for most seasons with one team on his first play.

Dirk Nowitzki admits he needs to get up to speed after making National Basketball Association history against the Phoenix Suns.

"It is good to be back", he said following the short outing.

"All things considered, he did fine, did well", Carlisle said. It's going to be a process for me playing against National Basketball Association players, (especially) the speed of the game these days.

Nowitzki and Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant had been tied with each playing 20 years for the same franchise before last night's game.

"Coming back in and re-accumulate mid-stream, with no real live practice time to speak of, but he has been busting his butt big time".

In an era where centers and power forwards are taking 3-pointers more than ever, Nowitzki was ahead of his time and is perhaps the greatest global player the National Basketball Association has ever seen. But the 7-foot German had a setback before training camp, with tendon soreness forcing him to continue rehabbing the injury and missing the first 26 games.

Nowitzki remains the seventh-leading scorer in National Basketball Association history with 31,189 career points.

Nowitzki came off the bench in the first quarter, and in six minutes made one shot before leaving the game.

Among the most anticipated scenes will be the first time that Nowitki shares the floor with rookie sensation Luka Doncic. And Nowitzki was a game changer in a specific way - all these "stretch 4s" in today's National Basketball Association, giant players who fill it from 3-point territory, Dirk started all that.
