Millsap scored 22 points (8-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT) while adding eight rebounds, five steals, three assists and a block in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 135-102 win over the Bulls. Chicago's defense was virtually non-existent in this one, as seven different Denver players scored in double digits while the team as a whole shot 61.4 percent from the floor and 57.1 percent from three-point range. Millsap has only hit for 20 or more points twice in 12 games since returning from his wrist injury, but with the Nuggets now only 1.5 games back of a playoff spot, the veteran forward could be gearing up for a big finish to the season.
Millsap had 14 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 45 minutes during Monday's 149-141 loss to Miami. Millsap played a whopping 45 minutes in the double-overtime clash, finishing with 14 points and eight rebounds. He continues to work his way back from a lengthy absence and this was a good sign that his conditioning is almost back to where it needs to be. The Nuggets need to start winning some games and this should hopefully start in a favorable matchup with the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.
Millsap totaled only five points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 26 minutes in Tuesday's 112-103 loss to the Lakers. The veteran surprisingly saw a considerable downturn in usage for the second straight game, following five consecutive double-digit scoring efforts to open March. Millsap's 11 shot attempts over the last pair of contests still falls one short of the 12 he'd put against the Lakers last Friday, but the fluctuations are perhaps to be expected to an extent. Both Nikola Jokic, and recently, Wilson Chandler, are heavily involved in the paint as well, limiting some of Millsap's opportunities on certain nights. He'll look to bounce back in a Thursday night battle with the Pistons.
Millsap finished with 21 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 30 minutes during Friday's 125-116 victory over the Lakers. Millsap had his best performance since returning from a wrist injury. He saw the court for 30 minutes and was crucial to the Nuggets coming away with an important win. He has been able to contribute across the board with consistency and seems to be adjusting to playing next to Nikola Jokic. The team will get a night off before facing the Sacramento Kings in what should be another victory.
Millsap had 12 points (4-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 113-108 loss to Cleveland. Millsap continues to work his way back from a wrist injury that saw him miss a large portion of the season. While his production has not been amazing by any stretch of the imagination, he has now scored in double figures in four consecutive games while recording multiple defensive stats and connecting on all his free-throw attempts. He is likely not going to reach anywhere near the level he has in previous seasons but is still worth owning in all leagues.
