The Knicks lost to the Pelicans on December 1st, but Hardaway did all he could to keep the game close down the stretch. For the first time in his young career, he got an opportunity to take some shots in key moments, and he answered the call.
He scored 21 points and hit five of his eight shots from beyond the arc in this game. He showed that he's capable of taking on a scoring load in crunch time, playing the entire 4th quarter and scoring 12 points in the frame.
