Mills registered 24 points (7-13 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three steals and one assist in 23 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Pacers.
Mills remains a consistent scoring force off the bench for the Spurs, and this was the ninth time this season where he scored 20 or more points while operating as a substitute. The veteran point guard is more than capable of putting up big numbers on a nightly basis, but he has lacked consistency of late, as he has scored in double figures just twice in San Antonio's last five outings while shooting an ugly 33.3 percent from the field during that span.
Mills had eight points (3-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and two steals over 28 minutes in Wednesday's 109-103 loss to Dallas.
Mills has come off the bench in all but one game for the Spurs this season with mixed results, but he managed to record decent production in several areas Wednesday. Mills' inconsistent output has made him a risky fantasy play this season.
Mills poured in 20 points (7-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT) across 28 minutes Tuesday in the Spurs' 114-106 win over the Thunder.
Mills reached the 20-point threshold for the eighth time this season, but as has often been the case in those other games, he provided little else to support his scoring production. He remains little more than a two-category streamer, and a high-variance one at that.
Mills finished with three points (1-8 FG, 1-7 3Pt) and one assist in 19 minutes Tuesday in the Spurs' 129-102 loss to the Lakers.
Regression hit Mills hard in the second half of the Spurs' back-to-back set, as the reserve guard couldn't get anything going after averaging 18.0 points on 46 percent shooting from the field and 41.9 percent shooting from three-point range over the prior four outings. When shots aren't falling for Mills, he typically doesn't offer much elsewhere on the stat sheet to make up for it, so he's best viewed as more of a streaming option in most leagues rather than a must-roster player.
Mills generated 18 points (6-13 FG, 6-13 3Pt), two assists and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench Monday in the Spurs' 108-105 loss to the Clippers.
Mills' sixth triple of the night cut the Spurs' deficit to one point with two seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, but he was unable to connect on a half-court heave at the buzzer that would have sent the game to overtime. In any event, the veteran guard was able to get the job done for those who deployed him as a three-category streamer, as has been the case for each of the past four games. Over that stretch, he's averaging 18.0 points, 4.5 three-pointers and 2.0 steals.
Mills went for 18 points (5-11 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT) and added two steals in 25 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 127-120 win over the Jazz.
Mills has been one of San Antonio's main scoring threats off the bench. Even though he has struggled with consistency of late, the Australian point guard has scored at least 15 points coming off the bench in five of the Spurs' last nine games. Those scoring figures and the fact that he is averaging 23.5 minutes per game during January are enough reason to keep him serviceable in some fantasy formats.
Mills totaled 25 points (8-15 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two assists, two steals and one rebound in 29 minutes off the bench during Monday's 110-109 defeat at Chicago.
The backcourt of Dejounte Murray and Bryn Forbes combined for just four points on 2-9 shooting, but Mills picked up the slack with his third 20-point performance of this month. The Australian point guard is averaging career highs in both points (11.7) and threes (2.4), which should be enough reason to consider him serviceable for fantasy purposes even if he keeps coming off the bench.
Mills scored 21 points (8-15 FG, 5-12 3Pt) while adding a rebound and an assist in 23 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 106-100 loss to the Heat.
The veteran guard hit for 21 points for the second time in the last five games, although his 26 total points over the three games in between those performances highlights how unreliable he is for fantasy purposes. Mills is still on a career-best pace from beyond the arc this season, averaging 2.3 three-pointers a game.
Mills posted nine points (3-12 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes during Sunday's 105-104 win over the Raptors.
Mills has connected at least one three-pointer in each of the past five games, and he's shooting 41.4 percent from deep over this stretch, pitching in 11.6 points per game. He has 14 efforts this season with at least two made threes in fewer than 25 minutes of action. Only Kyle Korver (16) and Doug McDermott (16) have more such performances.
Mills supplied 21 points (6-10 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and a steal in 23 minutes, as the Spurs knocked off the Bucks 126-104 on Monday night.
Mills was launching threes all night and had a nasty step-back bomb over Brook Lopez in the first quarter. Perhaps the more interesting occurrence were the goose eggs strewn across Mills' stat sheet. It was his first game this season in which he failed to record an assist or a rebound. He remains an asset for his three-point shooting and is likely to re-establish himself throughout the box score.
Mills had 18 points (6-14 FG, 5-11 3PT, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 33 minutes off the bench minutes during Tuesday's 117-113 overtime win over the Warriors.
Mills logged over 30 minutes for the first time in his last seven games, but that was an anomaly as his playing tends to fluctuate between the 18 and 25 minutes per night. The lack of an established bench role has hurt Mills' upside, but he can be an asset for owners looking for three-point help since he is shooting 41.7 percent from deep -- his best mark in his last six seasons -- to date.
Mills had 27 points (8-14 FG, 7-10 3PT, 4-7 FT), two assists and one rebound in 26 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 118-105 win over the Nets.
Mills has topped the 25-point mark in two of his last three games, and he has scored in double digits in four of his last five contests. Despite coming off the bench, Mills has been one of San Antonio's main scoring threats and is averaging a career-high 12.0 points per game in the Spurs' first 27 games.
Mills scored a game-high 26 points (10-23 FG, 6-14 3Pt) while adding five rebounds, two steals and an assist in 32 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 121-119 overtime win over the Suns.
His final basket was the biggest, as Mills drained a jumper from the free-throw line with 0.3 seconds left on the clock to secure the win for the Spurs. The six made threes tied his season high, set Nov. 1 when he poured in a season-best 31 against the Warriors.
Mills posted nine points (2-8 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds and six assists in Tuesday's 135-133 win against the Rockets.
Mills has been solid off the bench this season, providing a career-high 11 points per game while making 45.9 percent of his field goals and 42.1 percent of his three-pointers, both of which are his best in over five years. The 31-year-old has been a solid part of the Spurs' rotation this season and figures to keep that role with his strong play this season.
Mills had 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-5 3PT), two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 28 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 111-104 win over the Knicks.
Mills has been a deadly weapon for the Spurs coming off the bench, as he has scored in double digits in nine of his 16 appearances with the second unit thus far. He is shooting career-high marks on both field-goal percentage (49.0 percent) and three-point field goal percentage (45.7) this seaeson.
Mills managed 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt), six assists, two steals and one rebound in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 138-132 loss to the Wizards.
Mills drew the start while Dejounte Murray came off the bench, and the 31-year-old veteran amassed season highs in assists and minutes. Mills has reached double figures in scoring in eight of 11 games during November, but this is just the second time this month he has handed out more than two dimes. It's unclear whether he will remain a starter going forward, and the absence of Derrick White (foot) likely led to more minutes for Mills in this one. As such, those considering Mills in daily leagues may want to keep tabs on White's status heading into Friday's tilt versus the 76ers.
Mills will start Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Mills has been the leader of the Spurs' second unit this season, but he'll make his first start of the season as coach Gregg Popovich mixes things up to try and end a six-game losing streak. The 31-year-old is averaging 11.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 21.1 minutes through 14 games.
Mills scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding two assists and a rebound in 18 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 135-115 loss to the Celtics.
He was the only member of the Spurs' second unit to score in double digits. Mills has been locked in from three-point range, draining multiple threes in six of the last seven games while shooting 52.9 percent (18-for-34) from beyond the arc but his career numbers suggest he won't provide much fantasy utility in any other category.
Mills scored 16 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding two rebounds and two steals in 26 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 108-100 loss to the Hawks.
The veteran guard led the Spurs second unit in scoring on the night -- in fact, the rest of the second unit combined for only 20 points. Mills is capable of getting hot from the outside, and he's drained multiple three-pointers in five of seven games to begin the season, but his minutes and role don't afford him consistent fantasy production.
Mills had 31 points (10-16 FG, 6-9 3PT, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes during the Spurs' 127-110 win at the Warriors on Friday night.
Mills hasn't topped the 22-minute plateau in any game this season, but he led San Antonio against the reigning (and depleted) Western Conference champions. Despite this stellar effort, Mills' playing time might not increase much going forward in an already crowded backcourt featuring the likes of Dejounte Murray, Derrick White and Bryn Forbes. He should remain as a reliable asset going forward, but his upside will be capped due to his restricted playing time.
