Nowitzki says going through tough times

NBA All-Star Dirk Nowitzki offered no explanation about the arrest of a woman at his home, saying only that he is having personal troubles.

When asked about his relationship with Cristal Taylor, 37, who was arrested on a probation violation and theft of services warrants on Wednesday, Nowitzki declined comment.

"It's pretty obvious that I'm going through a tough time in my personal life right now, but like I always have, I want to kind of keep my private life private," he said. "I'm not at the stage where I can talk about it yet and feel comfortable talking about it."

Nowitzki's Dallas Mavericks trail the Denver Nuggets 0-2 in the Western Conference semifinals entering Game 3 today.

"I'll be ready," said Nowitzki.

Dallas police said Taylor was taken into custody on Wednesday morning at Nowitzki's home. She remained in Dallas County Jail on Thursday on US$20,000 bond.

A 2006 indictment alleging theft of service in Jefferson County in Texas listed eight aliases for Taylor, who was accused of not paying for dental services in the range of US$1,500 to US$20,000.
