2009, March 23, American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX:
Normally we receive gifts on our birthday but Jason Kidd decided to give the Mavs a gift on his birthday by taking over the game in the 2nd half. Dirk Nowitzki was ejected just after the half after receiving back to back technicals and had to watch the rest of the game from the locker room after arguing with an official. Kidd took over the game and scored 26 points, had 12 assists, and 6 rebounds to help carry the Mavs to a 106-96 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
