What a whirlwind for Jaden Hardy. Last night he scored 39 points for the Legends in Frisco. This morning he caught a very early flight to Chicago and here he is signing autographs before facing the Bulls on a night Dallas won’t have 3 rotation players, including Doncic. pic.twitter.com/4eEjBMMpFp5:27 PM

He names his reasons 🧐

📅 On this day in 2005, the @Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James scored 52 points in a loss to the Bucks.
It was the second career 50-point game for the 20-year-old James. He’s the only player in NBA history to record two 50-point games before his 21st birthday.

The value of passing the ball on display. Giannis tries to make a solo drive to the rim with two runners on either side. Gets snuffed. Josh Green lobs a pass to Christian Wood for a terrific dunk at the other end. Mavs lead 40-34. – 10:45 PM
