Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. said he felt "good" after scoring 25 points in his second game back from a 20-game absence due to a left leg injury in Sunday's 123-118 overtime loss to the New Orleans Pelicans at Madison Square Garden.
"It's going to take a couple of games for me to really get a feel and idea when I'm out there on the floor," Harsaway said, according to NorthJersey.com's Steve Popper. "First and foremost I felt good."
After scoring 16 points on Friday against the Timberwolves, his first game since November, Hardaway logged 33 minutes on Sunday, making 8 of 17 field goals and also recording five rebounds and three assists.
Hardaway admitted Friday night he felt it would take him a short while to get re-acclimated to the tempo of the game after suffering a stress-related leg injury.
On Sunday, he committed three turnovers, which tied a season high, and went just 2-for-10 from beyond the arc as the Knicks blew a 19-point second-half lead to New Orleans.
"We've got to use this game as motivation and try to do the best we can in the next if we're in that position to lock in more, to focus in more as a team," Hardaway said, according to the New York Daily News' Peter Botte.
