Mills totaled 18 points (7-15 FG, 4-10 3Pt), and five rebounds in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 99-91 loss to Golden State. Mills had himself a nice game to finish out the post-season but was not able to deliver a range of stats as it typical for the Aussie sharpshooter. He saw an increased role this season with Kawhi Leonard (quad) missing basically the entire season but was not able to take advantage of the playing time. He remains a somewhat limited asset and more of a streaming option in most formats.
Mills netted 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt) and added two rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 33 minutes during San Antonio's 110-97 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. That's two consecutive sharp shooting efforts for Mills, who drained a series-best 46.2 percent of his 13 attempts Thursday. The nine-year veteran has served as a solid complement to LaMarcus Aldridge on the starting five over the last pair of contests, and he'll look to generate a third straight double-digit point tally when the Spurs try to stave off elimination in Sunday's Game 4.
Mills recorded 15 points (6-14 FG, 3-10 3Pt), two rebounds, an assist and a steal in 27 minutes during Monday's 98-85 win over the Kings. Once it was clear that Kawhi Leonard was not going to come back this season, Mills cemented his role as the starting off-guard and was a consistent contributor and an efficient scorer from beyond the arc, where he converted on 41.3 percent of his attempts from long range. He tended to excel when rookie DeJounte Murray would hit rough patches with his jump shot, and Mills was effective in picking up the slack. Although he won't register eye-popping stats most nights, he'll be a valuable member of San Antonio's supporting cast come playoff time.
Mills delivered 15 points (6-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 122-112 overtime loss to the Lakers. Mills continues to serve as a relatively steady source of complementary offensive production on the starting five, with Wednesday's point tally representing his fifth straight double-digit scoring effort. The nine-year veteran has gotten it done over the last two games despite sub-40-percent success rates from the floor, as his typically robust volume of shots from three-point range often helps him prop up his final line.
Mills managed 17 points (5-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, one rebound and one steal across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 113-110 loss to the Clippers. Mills was only one of two first-unit members to hit double digits in the scoring column, accomplishing the feat for the fifth time in the last six games. The veteran sharpshooter's success rate from the floor has been all over the map recently, as he's alternated three performances with tallies of 38.5 percent or less with three others in which he's shot at least 55.6 percent. His aggressiveness has helped him to serviceable scoring totals even when he's less than sharp, with the fact he's drained multiple threes in four straight a fitting example of such.
