Hardaway totaled 24 points (8-14 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and four assists over 36 minutes during Wednesday's 123-119 win over Sacramento.

Hardaway was held to six points in 18 minutes his last time out Sunday in Atlanta, but he was able to rediscover his shooting touch as the Mavericks returned home to the American American Center. Even after the poor showing in Atlanta, Hardaway has generally been trending upward as the regular season nears its conclusion. He's unseated Josh Green for a starting role and is averaging 18.3 points (on 51.4 percent shooting from the field), 3.7 three-pointers, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 31.8 minutes per game over his last six appearances.
