Tim scored a career-high 38 points, adding 6 rbs and 7 assts (tying Courtney Lee for game high) in the Knicks 108-100 victory over the Raptors. Down 11 at the half, the Knicks went on a 28-0 run in the 3rd quarter; Tim had 12 of those points.
Must have been an interesting halftime, as Porzingis said they had "some strong words" for each other.
''I'm just taking what the defense gives me,'' Hardaway said. ''If I see a lane I'm just penetrating as hard as I can and trying to make the right play at the basket. I'm just playing off the big fella (Porzingis). You've got to keep him happy.''
Title Says It All - well except that Beilein is King of the World. Saving that for another thread.
Campus Insiders' Jordan Cornette and Ray Crawford recap the Wolverines selected in the NBA Draft including why Nik Stauskas will star in Sacramento and Mitch McGary will bring the Thunder in Oklahoma City.
The Lakers and Knicks are going at it right now on ABC. Hardaway has 18 points and Manny harris has 16 I believe. Mike Tirico really pumping in the Michigan love. It's really good to see Manny have some success. Hopefully he gets another contract from the Lakers!
Don't know if this is thread worthy but they have been playing much better than expected this early in their NBA career's. Attached are Tim's Highlight's and a few of Trey's better games. Hope to see much more of this for years to come!
With Carmelo Anthony, JR Smith re-signing, Artest signing, and even Iman Shumpert having a year of experience on him, it doesn't look like there will be too many wing minutes for Hardaway this year. And none of those players seem like the mentoring type (obviously I have no real clue what these players are like). Looks like we won't have a chance to really see Hardway's NBA game until 2014.
I was watching pre-game coverage when a bout of inspiration hit me. I ignored all else so I could get this down before I forgot it. I hope you enjoy this. Now if you’ll excuse me, I hear there’s a pretty big game on right now.
The devil Pitino went down to Georgia, he was looking for a title to steal.
He was in a bind, his team was way behind because Burke was making steals.
He had run into some young men raining down threes and making some blocks.
And the devil Pitino jumped up onto the hardcourt and said “Boys, let me tell you what:
“I bet you didn’t know it, but my team’s pretty damn good too
“And if you care to take a dare I’ll make a bet with you.
“Now you’ve playing good basketball, but give my Cardinals their due:
“I bet the national title against your game ‘cause I think we’re better than you.”
The boys said: “Well we’re the Fresh Five and this may not be wise,
“But we’ll take your bet, you’re gonna regret, cause we’re the best since the Fab Five.”
Wolverines take your practice shots and get ready to play hard.
‘Cause Louisville’s in Georgia and the devil Pitino deals the cards.
And if you win you gain respect from M fans young and old.
But if you lose, it just might crush my soul.
The devil Pitino chalked up many plays and said: “We’ll start this show.”
And threes rained from beyond the arc and put backs went down low.
And the Cardinals were the darlings, making Wolverine fans hiss.
Then the Cardinal sang a song to their glory and it sounded something like this:
When the Cardinals finished, the Fresh Five said: “Well you’re pretty good ‘ol chaps.
“But sit down on that bench, right there.” And Burke gave the court a slap.
Stauskas nailing three balls, one by one.
Burke showing all why we’re number one.
Robinson and Hardaway alley-oops, WHOA!
“Beilein does Big Puppy bite?”
Go, Mitch, go.”
The devil Pitino and the Cardinals sank low once they were beat.
And they laid the national title on the court at the Fresh Five’s feet.
Burke said: “Devil Pitino just come on back but I warn you that’s not wise.
“’Cause we told you once, you sorry old man, we’re the best since the Fab Five.”
And they sang “Stauskas nailed three balls, one by one.
So as everyone realizes, once we had the 12-point lead against Purdue yesterday, we went 0 for our next 7 and eventually 1 of 9. That was a chance to start to put the game away in the first half, and we let Purdue back into it.
Part of how we built that lead were some aggressive plays by THJ getting to the hoop.
When we had the lead, there was a 2 on 1 breakawy with Hardaway leading with the ball. THJ kept the ball and missed the layup. To me it looked like an easy bounce pass for an easier layup. That was the beinning of the 1-9 shooting drought.
So what does everyone else think?
THJ is one of our guys that needs to attack the basket and should clearly keep it and try to make and/or draw the foul
Fielder's choice: 50/50 whether he keeps or dishes, but doesn't really matter
With a teammate streaking along with you, PASS THE BALL
Tim Hardaway Jr. and the MIchigan basketball team had a NBA2k13 Basketball tourny going on while playing on the JumboTron at the Crisler Center. I thought that was pretty baller even if you hate video games.
EDIT: The finals were between Stauskas and THJ. THJ was Miami (imagine that) and Stauskas was OKC. Stauskas is playing in the bottom pic.
