Tim Hardaway Jr fractures his foot
Earlier this season, the Golden State Warriors were rolling, until they played the Mavericks in Dallas. It was the night of Dirk Nowitzki’s jersey retirement, so it was fitting that the Mavericks would end Golden State’s winning streak. The game was a 99-82 blowout and the Warriors would struggle over the next ten games. Even with Klay Thompson back, the Warriors struggled, as Draymond Green left the lineup.
Prior to this slump, the Warriors were the NBA’s best team. However, the Phoenix Suns were on their heels and they took over the NBA’s top record. The Warriors, meanwhile, have silently rebuilt a winning streak. It took a Steph Curry game-winning shot to beat the struggling Rockets. More late game heroics took out the Utah Jazz. But, last night’s game against the Mavericks was a blowout win.
While the game was already shaping up to be a blowout, the Mavericks were dealt with a major blow. Lately, the Mavericks have been playing well, evidenced by their win over the Warriors. The Mavericks also ended the Memphis Grizzlies’ eleven game winning streak. With that, they began giving the Jazz a run for their money for the fourth seed.
Playing the Warriors last night, Tim Hardaway, Jr. went down with a foot injury. He suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal on his left foot.
