Former Michigan star Tim Hardaway Jr. had the game of his professional career Thursday, scoring a career-high 33 points on 12-of-18 shooting to lead the Atlanta Hawks past the Houston Rockets, 113-108.
What’s more, of Hardaway’s 33 points, 23 came over the game’s final 9 minutes, including a driving dunk over Clint Capela with less than a minute left to essentially seal the game for the Hawks.
