Hardy ended with 20 points (8-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and three steals over 24 minutes during Monday's 127-104 win over the Pacers.

Dallas raced out to a big lead early in the contest, allowing head coach Jason Kidd to hold both Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic under 30 minutes while supporting-cast players received elevated minutes. Hardy posted the most notable stat line of the Mavs' reserves, as he reached the 20-point mark for the eighth time this season and for the third time in the last four contests. He supplemented the efficient scoring with solid production in the assists and steals categories, though the rookie typically doesn't offer useful returns in those areas with any sort of regularity.
