For three quarters Monday night, Dirk Nowitzki looked every day of 37 years old and then some. He was an NBA geezer struggling on the second night of a back-to-back, bricking nine of the 12 shots he hoisted.

A vintage Nowitzki performance was the featured attraction during the fourth quarter and overtime of the 118-113 win over the scrappy Boston Celtics. Nowitzki scored 21 of his season-high tying 31 points during the final 17 minutes of the Mavs’ much-needed victory.

Sixers coach Brett Brown, when asked how much Embiid would play in Wednesday’s season opener against the Wizards, told reporters that he didn’t have a set number of minutes in mind before acknowledging “somewhere like in the teens.” “That’s f—ing bulls—. I wish I was playing more minutes,” Embiid told reporters on Tuesday. “I think I’m ready. I think I’m ready for more than whatever number they have. I don’t know.
