Paul Millsap had an efficient night (4-for-6 from the field and 4-for-4 from the line) in a win over the Blazers on Tuesday, and he finished with 14 points, five rebounds, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in just 20 minutes.
Every year, we want to write off aging players so that the new exciting ones can try to do something with their minutes. Millsap has certainly dropped off over the last few seasons, but here's the reminder that he's still valuable even in reduced minutes. If you need a safe floor more than a risky ceiling after the first 100 picks, Millsap is your guy. His main competition for minutes, Jerami Grant also had a good game with 13 points, three triples and two blocks in 21 minutes.
