Tim Hardaway's nightmare game against the Dallas Mavericks in 1991

Today marks the anniversary of a very peculiar game that happened in NBA history. In 1991, Tim Hardaway, who was at that time one of the best point guards in the league, had a game he probably wanted to forget soon after it ended.

In 44 minutes he spent on the floor, Hardaway took 17 shots while at the same time finishing the game with zero field goals made. He did score two points, but they came from free throws. It’s essential to mention he finished the game with 13 assists.

The Warriors managed to win the game against the Dallas Mavericks 106-102 behind Chris Mullin, who was making every single shot, and finished with a game-high 36 points.
