Mills poured in 21 points (7-11 FG, 7-7 3Pt) along with two rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 29 minutes off the bench during the Nets' 127-104 loss to the Bucks on Tuesday night. Mills was perfect from distance and dropped five of his threes by halftime. Quieted in the second half, Mills nonetheless showcased his stroke and stands as a beneficiary of Kyrie Irving's (personal) absence.
