"It's an important summer for this franchise, for sure, to head back in the right direction, if you want to say, starting with the draft," Nowitzki said. "And then free agency is important, too. So, yeah, this is a big summer, but we tend to stand here the last few years and always say it's a big summer for the franchise."
"We made some jumpers, but we didn't break their rhythm or anything," Nowitzki said. "We just had some bad stretches there where we couldn't score. We had some bad miscommunication with defense, and they made us pay."
