Nowitzki with bad luck in the final seconds of the game

Dirk nowitzki chewed on his transparent mouthguard in dissatisfaction. In the last second, the basketball superstar of the dallas mavericks had a chance to tie the game with the nuggets, but his shot hit the front rim of the ring.

Texans just missed fifth win in series with 100-102 shutout loss. "We ran a good play," nowitzki analyzed the end of the game. "I had to let one go and had an open throw, but it just didn’t go in."

After recent strong performances, the wurzburger continued his personal trend with 27 points as the top scorer of his NBA team, but lacked shooting luck in the heiben phase. His three throws in the final minute and a half missed their target. "I simply have to be better at the end," nowitzki struggled with himself.

In the heated game just one day after the 103-93 win over utah jazz, mavs coach rick carlisle had to go to the dressing room midway through the second quarter after two technical fouls in a row. "I will always stand up for my players," said carlisle, who had complained loudly about a hard foul on newcomer monta ellis. With nine wins from 14 games this season and a perfect home record, the mavs have little to complain about at the moment.

The situation is different for the two german rookies in the north american professional league. National player dennis schroder did not play for the atlanta hawks for the third time in a row in saturday’s 87-94 home defeat. His national team colleague elias harris was also only a spectator at the 102-95 home victory of the los angeles lakers against the golden state warriors.

Despite multiple stints with farm team los angeles d-fenders, the 24-year-old is relaxed about his situation. He, as well as the second lakers-rookie ryan kelly, had been given the opportunity to train and play additionally with the club from the D-league, harris told the "rhein-neckar-zeitung" (saturday). "But we are still involved with the lakers, in the training sessions, strength sessions, video analysis and, of course, the games."

After being recalled to the lakers by the D-fenders youngest, he was ordered back to the D-league team on saturday. There, he scored 18 points in a 114-124 loss to the rio grande valley vipers and had to leave the court with six fouls after 28 minutes of action.

Top star derrick rose of the chicago bulls will be completely absent for a long time. Shortly after his comeback, the point guard suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee in the 95-98 loss to the portland trail blazers and now needs surgery. According to the team, this was the result of a survey conducted on saturday. Rose will be absent "indefinitely", usually such an injury entails a break of months.

The most valuable nba player of the 2010/11 season tore the cruciate ligament in his left knee in april 2012 and subsequently missed the entire past season.
