Tim Hardaway scored 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting (including a season-high five triples) to go with three rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes off the bench in Saturday’s 109-87 win over the Rockets.
Hardaway might have gotten some extra minutes because Kent Bazemore (knee) might not have been himself, as Bazemore scored four points on 2-of-5 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 16 minutes. The Hawks have a terrible playoff schedule so if you need to move on from Bazemore we’d understand, and the same goes for guys like Kyle Korver (11 points, three treys, three assists). Thabo Sefolosha (10 points, four rebounds, five assists, five steals, one block, 22 minutes) is a bad bet to be valuable during that stretch.
That said, everybody gets a four-game week to maintain short-term value before the three-gamers take hold. Hardaway doesn’t do much besides score and hit threes, so standard league owners need to keep that in mind.
