Millsap managed 17 points (4-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-8 FT), six rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block across 39 minutes during the Nuggets' 119-108 loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Thursday. Millsap was far from efficient from the floor, but a perfect showing from the charity stripe served to prop up his final line significantly. The veteran big had been very sharp in the first five games of the series, shooting 56.3 percent or better in four of those contests. The Game 6 clunker aside, Millsap remains one of the most reliable fantasy assets on the Nuggets and will look to maximize his opportunities in Sunday's decisive Game 7 on his Pepsi Center home floor.
Millsap registered 24 points (9-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 34 minutes during the Nuggets' 124-98 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Tuesday. Millsap was a force down low once again, particularly in a first half when he put up 19 of his points. The veteran is now averaging 19.0 points and 9.6 rebounds during the series, and he's eclipsed the 20-point mark in back-to-back contests. Coupled with his strong efforts on the boards, the veteran shapes up as an appealing fantasy asset heading into Thursday's Game 6.
Millsap registered 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, three steals and two blocks across 49 minutes during the Nuggets' 140-137 quadruple-overtime loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal-round series Friday. Millsap put together another strong effort and gave the Nuggets a momentary 129-125 lead in the final overtime with a jumper. The veteran big man has back-to-back double-doubles and is shooting an impressive 54.2 percent over the first three games of the series overall. The 34-year-old will look to continue making an impact on both the scoreboard and the glass in a critical Game 4 on Sunday.
Millsap tallied 14 points (6-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 97-90 loss to Portland. Millsap was able to put up a double-double during his 32 minutes Wednesday, although it was to no avail as the Nuggets gave up homecourt advantage in the Game 2 loss. Millsap has had two strong performances matching up with the smaller bodies of the Trail Blazers. Unfortunately, there was not a lot of support for the veteran and the Nuggets will now need to win at least one of the two games coming up in Portland if they hope to advance to the Conference Finals.
Millsap had 19 points (7-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-7 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one block in 28 minutes during Monday's 121-113 victory over Portland. Millsap did most of his damage early Monday but remained a factor throughout as the Nuggets held on for an eight-point victory in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals. He took advantage of a number of mismatches to begin the game and got the Nuggets off to a strong start. Millsap is certainly not the player he once was but his playoff experience could prove invaluable throughout the course of the series.
