Dallas Mavericks: Looking back at an incredible dunk from Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Dallas Mavericks acquired Tim Hardaway Jr. as part of the Kristaps Porzingis trade in 2019. Few saw him emerging as the Mavs third option, but Hardaway Jr. had one of the best seasons of his career. He improved his efficiency and helped Dallas finish with the top offense in the NBA.

Hardaway Jr. got the fans hyped on several occasions too. He had four 30-point games this season. There was also the night against the Kings in December where THJ did not miss. He connected on nine 3-pointers.

Fans do not normally associate Hardaway Jr. with monster dunks, but he produced one of the best ones of the Mavericks season. Let us take a look back at the incredible play.
