Dirk Nowitzki reached another milestone Monday night at Time Warner Cable Arena.

When Nowitzki’s 18-foot jumper put the Mavs ahead of the Charlotte Hornets 73-52 with 6:07 remaining in the third quarter, it was the 27,000th point of his illustrious career. Thus, Nowitzki joins Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant as the only NBA players to ever score as many as 27,000 points with one franchise.

“It means a lot to me that I was able to do it for one franchise with not knowing what to expect when I first got there a long time ago,’’ he said. “It’s been a great ride.’’
