Hardaway registered 19 points (6-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one block across 30 minutes in Sunday's 105-98 preseason win over the Magic.

With the Hawks resting backcourt members Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore and Malcolm Delaney and Jarrett Jack (knee) still unavailable, plenty of minutes were open for Hardaway and the team's other reserve guards. Hardaway was able to parlay the increased court time into his best outing of the preseason, but that's not saying much considering how miserably he'd performed in his prior three games. Hardaway shot a ghastly 3-for-30 from the field and 0-for-11 from three-point range across those contests.
