It took almost 19 seasons for Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki to join the NBA’s 30,000-point club, but he didn’t have to wait long against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.

Nowitzki, who entered the game 20 points shy of the historic milestone, hit 30,000 on a baseline jumper over Larry Nance Jr. with 10:58 remaining in the second quarter. There are now six 30,000-point scorers in NBA history, with Nowitzki joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. Malone, Bryant and Nowitzki, who plans to play at least one more season, are the only players to score at least 30,000 points for one team.
