Dirk drains 41 as Mavericks edge Spurs in OT

BY foxsports • November 19, 2009

The Dallas Mavericks needed a big game from Dirk Nowitzki to compensate for the loss of three injured starters, and that's exactly what he gave them.

Nowitzki scored 11 of his season-high 41 points in overtime and the Mavericks held on to beat the injury-depleted San Antonio Spurs 99-94 on Wednesday night.

Drew Gooden added 17 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out late in the fourth quarter, and Dallas extended its winning streak to four games.
