Dallas Mavericks wing Tim Hardaway Jr. is putting in work ahead of NBA Disney

The Dallas Mavericks will be heading to Orlando next month for the NBA’s restart. 22 teams are going to vie for a championship. The Mavs will need to find their rhythm quickly. Tim Hardaway Jr. is going to be an important piece of Dallas’ puzzle.

Nobody expected him to shoot over 40 percent from 3-point range this season. He was a career 34.3 percent shooter coming in. Hardaway Jr. loved to shoot off the dribble and was never afraid to fire away. The Mavericks turned him into more of a catch and shoot option. That allowed his numbers to skyrocket.

Hardaway Jr. maintaining the production in Orlando will be a key for the Mavericks. They need him as their third scorer and floor spacer to keep their number one offense rolling. THJ is already doing his part to make that happen.
