Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 28 points (8 threes) against his former team and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Julius Randle-led New York Knicks 121-100 on Saturday.

“This road trip, when you have family and friends in both cities, it lightens you and brings some positive vibes and some positive energy,” Hardaway said, via ESPN. “To come here, to Detroit and to New York, both places where I used to play college and professionally, was a great atmosphere. I was comfortable, and my teammates (were) keeping me positive.”
