Nowitzki is one of three to score all 30,000-plus with one team.Nowitzki scored Dallas' first eight points in slightly more than two minutes, matched the best first quarter of his career with 18 points and reached the hallowed mark on a 15-foot fadeaway jumper from the baseline over Larry Nance Jr. with 10:58 remaining in the second quarter.After the signature shot for 30,000, Nowitzki added a 3-pointer for 23 points in the first 14 minutes before the game was stopped as teammates mobbed the wide-smiling star near midcourt.Nowitzki finished the night at 30,005 points and has said he plans to play a 20th season.Fans arrived with T-shirts draped over their seats that read "30K" behind a silhouette of Nowitzki's signature one-legged fadeaway jumper. And they stood each time the Mavericks brought the ball up the court when Nowitzki was two points away.Jason Kidd, the point guard with Nowitzki on Dallas' only championship team in 2011 and second in the NBA in career assists, joked that he should have passed more.
