Paul Millsap finished Tuesday’s loss with 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting but didn’t do much elsewhere, chipping in just six rebounds, one assist and a triple in 33 minutes.
Even worse, Millsap committed five turnovers. It wasn’t the finest start to his Denver career and things could take time to jell, but owners don’t have much to worry about with Millsap just yet. Even though his defensive numbers declined a bit last season they’re not going to totally dry up. From the positive side of the ledger, his 15 shots actually led the team so concerns about his offensive role should be assuaged a bit. Millsap will remain an early-round option.
