THREE POINTS

Dirk on the Doorstep: Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki needs four points to pass Wilt Chamberlain (31,419) for sixth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. The Mavericks host New Orleans tonight (8:30 p.m. ET, NBA League Pass) before beginning a three-game road trip in Portland on Wednesday. Nowitzki is averaging 10.4 points in his last five games.
