Dirk’s daggers

You learn one thing pretty quickly watching Dirk Nowitzki warm up: The Mavericks superstar doesn’t miss.

Nowitzki made 10-of-10 free throws and a variety shots from the elbow with his trademark high-arching shot about an hour before the game.

Nowitzki also practiced a technique for drawing fouls. Dirk glided across the lane at the elbow by dragging his feet, ensuring that an opponent’s foot would trip him should the opponent step out to deny the ball. Of course, Nowitzki made all of his shots despite dragging his feet.
