As Dirk Nowitzki played his final game for the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center, the spotlight was rightfully so, on the German.

While the NBA universe was bidding farewell to a legend in Nowitzki, it was another veteran who was busy setting all-time records.

Phoenix Suns guard Jamal Crawford went off for 51 points in the season finale for the Phoenix Suns, on a remarkable 18-of-30 shooting, adding 5 rebounds and 5 assists.

At the final horn, the Suns lost by a margin of nine points but not before Crawford set multiple records.

At 39 years & 20 days, Crawford, who was drafted in 2000, became the oldest player in NBA history to score 50.

Today marked Crawford's fourth 50-point career game. Here's a list of all his 50-point games (all with different teams):

Apr. 11, 2004: 50 points (Chicago Bulls)

Jan. 26, 2007: 52 points (New York Knicks)

Dec. 20, 2008: 50 points (Golden State Warriors)

Apr. 9, 2019: 51 points (Phoenix Suns)
