In the overtime, the score was 10-9 for Chicago to win, and a dunk from Lawson also Hardy’s 28 points cant help the Mavericks win their first match by losing 100-99 against the Bulls.

The score was 10-9 in overtime for Chicago to win. However, a dunk from Lawson as well as Hardy’s 28 points couldn’t help the Mavericks win their first match, losing 100-99 to the Bulls.

Despite the loss, Hardy had a positive outlook and would continue to improve his performance.

“I wanted to prove myself right, and as long as I was in the gym and me putting my trust in God, I feel like I came out here with a chip on my shoulder to prove myself right,” he said.

In the next match, Hardy will play for the Mavericks that will take the court on Monday against the Utah Jazz, while Bulls’ Simonovic will play against the New York Knicks on Sunday.
