Mason Plumlee started on Saturday for Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) and was effective in 20 minutes, chipping in 15 points (6-of-10 shooting), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Plumlee may have started, but it was Jerami Grant who saw more run in 32 minutes off the bench. Grant tallied 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, one 3-pointer and one block. It appears that both these guys will be in a tug-of-war for value in Millsap's absence.
