Dirk Nowitzki hit the winning shot to help the Dallas Mavericks beat the Chicago Bulls Saturday 100-98, and he celebrated like a madman. One thing you’ll notice about Nowitzki is that he looked just like a caveman as he celebrated. Refusing to shave for nearly two months will do that to someone.
As we told you last month, several Mavericks players vowed not to shave until the team got back to .500 for the season. They were 21-28 at the time they made the commitment, and they’re 36-37 after beating the Bulls.
Dallas was 35-36 after beating the Clippers on Tuesday. They actually had a barber prepared to trim their hair after Thursday’s game against the Pacers, but they lost that game to fall two games below .500. Now they’re back to where they were. Their next chance to get back to .500 will be Tuesday when they play at the Lakers.
Below is a video of Dirk’s awesome shot plus some Dirk caveman memes:
