Millsap averaged 14.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists over 38 games played with the Nuggets in 2017-18. Millsap missed a chunk of the season with a wrist injury as that may have been the reason why his point, rebound, assist and steal per game totals were all down from the last five seasons. It also may have been the reason playing alongside Nikola Jokic this year. The former Louisiana Tech star's highest scoring output in a game this season was 36 points on Mar. 30 at Oklahoma City. Millsap will be entering in the second year of his three-year, $90 deal with the Nuggets next season.
Millsap finished with six points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 36 minutes in an 88-82 win over the Trail Blazers on Monday. Millsap has now shot under 30.0 percent in two of the last three games, a rare slump for the offensively proficient veteran. The 33-year-old saw a seven-game streak of double-digit scoring efforts snapped with Monday's production, but he continued to offer his trademark strong work on the boards. Factoring in his line against the Blazers, he's hauled in between seven and 13 rebounds in six of the last eight games. Despite the outlier Monday, Millsap figures to play a pivotal role in a Wednesday showdown against the Timberwolves that will determine the Nuggets' playoff fate.
Millsap supplied 12 points (3-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-9 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 33 minutes in Thursday's 100-96 win over the Timberwolves. Millsap made up for his poorest shooting night since March 23 with a solid effort from the charity stripe, which allowed him to claw his way to his sixth straight double-digit scoring effort. The 12-year veteran continues to offer strong work on the boards, as well, hauling in between seven and 13 rebounds in eight of the last 10 games. With the Nuggets on the verge of climbing back into the Western Conference playoff picture, Millsap should remain an integral part of the push for the remaining three games of the regular season.
Millsap had 26 points (10-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes during Sunday's 128-125 victory over the Bucks. Millsap backed up his previous outing with another vintage display Sunday. Millsap has raised his game to another level over the past couple of weeks, looking more like the player the Nuggets had been hoping for. The Nuggets need to basically win every game from here out and Millsap is going to be a big part of their playoff push.
Millsap scored 36 points (13-18 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-11 FT), grabbed nine rebounds and dished two assists across 40 minutes Friday in Denver's win over Oklahoma City. Millsap came up huge for the Nuggets on Friday, pouring in 36 points a season-high, in a game that the Nuggets had to have as they fight for a playoff spot. Injuries have plagued Millsap's first year in Denver, but he has been a valuable fantasy asset in games where he has appeared. The veteran big has adopted a smaller offensive role but that could be a product of not having a chance to fully acclimate to his new situation.
