Nowitzki scores 30, confirms pending retirement

After scoring 30 points on 11-of-31 shooting in a 120-109 victory over Phoenix, he flashed a smile while thanking the Suns "for letting me have a few baskets tonight".

"As you guys might expect, this is my last home game", Nowitzki said, doing a better job of fighting his emotions than he did at the end of a timeout in the second quarter, after a tribute video showing his holiday visit to a children's hospital a little more than two years ago.

Tuesday marked the fourth time in Crawford's 19-year career that he's scored 50-plus points in a game, with each performance coming as a member of a different team. Coach Rick Carlisle said the plan is to play Nowitzki, who spent a record 21 seasons with the same franchise.

Trump says China trade talks going well
USA and Chinese officials are still discussing when the two leaders could sit down to sign off on their trade deal. President Xi Jinping has called for an early conclusion to negotiations, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

Although Nowitzki's retirement had been largely expected, the 2007 NBA Most Valuable Player had not actually announced that this would be his final season unlike Dwyane Wade.

Just as owner Mark Cuban hinted, the final home game trumped all those road shows.

But on this special night, Nowitzki turned back the clock, and so did the crowd as it chanted "M-V-P!" Barkley added, "It's been an honor and a privilege to watch you - enjoy the rest of your life". Nowitzki made 14 All-Star games and earned All-NBA honors 12 times in his 21-year NBA career played entirely with the Mavericks. He was the first player that big to be a legitimate threat at the 3-point line.

He secured his season high in points with a straightaway 3-pointer, his fifth of the game, early in the third quarter for 22 points.

The Suns finished tied for the second-worst record in the league this season at 19-63, but that won't to deter Crawford from returning for a 20th National Basketball Association season.

"This is my new home", Nowitzki said. "But physically, the foot is just not quite there".
