Callie Caplan: Tim Hardaway Jr. (22 points on 8-16 FG) after his most efficient game of season: “It was a relief today just to see them put me in there [starting] and give me confidence.” He and Jason Kidd had long talk yesterday while THJ came in for an off-day workout.
Nick Wright: Luka Doncic is 23 years old. Dirk Nowitzki played 20 years, all for the Mavs, and is the NBA’s 6th all time leading scorer. Luka Doncic and Dirk Nowitzki now have the same number of career 40 point games!!! Doesn’t seem possible, but it is.
