There was a cool moment towards the end of last night’s Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Clippers NBA game as Clippers coach Doc Rivers called a time out, grabbed the microphone and encouraged the crowd to give Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki a standing ovation. Check it out below:
Doc Rivers gave Dirk Nowitzki a memorable tribute by calling timeout with nine seconds remaining and getting the crowd to give Dirk a standing ovation. "Let's go! Let's go! Let's go! One of the greatest of all-time, Dirk Nowitzki!" Classy gesture from Doc! pic.twitter.com/ssf4DJWjJM

Mavericks beat writer Tim Cato with Dirk’s reaction after the game:
Dirk: "At first I was like, 'Why's he calling a timeout, there's six seconds left.' … but that was really humbling, an emotional moment, and I really appreciate it."
