Dallas Mavericks ace Dirk Nowitzki has moved up to 16th position in the NBA's all-time scoring list, reports ESPN.
Nowitzki moved up the pecking order are firing 19 points in the Mavericks' 105-95 win over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday.
And the 35-year-old moved up the ranking following a three-pointer from the left wing, with just under a minute remaining in the third quarter against the Wizards.
The star has now gone above Jerry West after reaching 25, 197 career points and he is closing in on 15th position, which is currently occupied by Reggie Miller, who has 25279 career points.
And after reaching 16th place, Nowitzki told reporters: "It's nice, obviously a great accomplishment. 'The Logo' says it all and sums it up. It's another great milestone, but for now, I'll keep working and that's really about it. Like I always say, all these milestones are great once my career is over."
Nowitzki will be hoping to continue moving up the coring charts and could even make the top 10 before the end of the season.
Nowitzki will currently be preparing for The Mavericks' clash with the Miami Heat, which takes place on Saturday.
