DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks shot their way to a milestone victory for coach Rick Carlisle.

Nowitzki made five of Dallas’ 16 3-pointers, and the Mavericks beat the Clippers 108-82 on Saturday for Carlisle’s 700th career win.

“It just means that I’ve been very fortunate,” Carlisle said. “As time goes on, I count those things even less. It’s day to day and trying to improve the situation.”
