    Favors Finishing Games. Millsap Sits.

    So Favors has finished the last 3 (?) games while Paul has sat to close games.

    We all know Millsap slumps at least once throughout the season, but this feels different to me. We've all been screaming for minutes for Derrick, now he's getting them.

    Will this last? How much rope will Corbin give him? When Millsap rebounds from his slump will he finish games, even if Favors continues to play well?

    I think the battle between Al and Paul has begun. The winner stays with the team post ASB, and Al is winning so far.
    Freckle Liiiiiip.

    I think Big Al definately has the advantage due to the fact the favors is more of a power forward and AL can play the 5 and millsap cant.

    Last 3 games? I remember Millsap closing out the game in Sacramento.

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    I think we will see more of Favors in the closing out of games and less of Millsap. This will increase as the season goes on. I hope I am wrong but I am starting to see Millsap leaving and being glad to go.

    Or Millsap reinvents himself in an excellent 6th man.
    Build a man a fire; keep him warm for a day. Light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of this life.

    Repeating the same actions and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

    I'd love to see him and Hayward buy totally into the system and be the leaders of the bench.

    Sap is way overdue for a monster game.

    Hayward would do this, Sap has an overinflated opinion of his skills. He would not be happy at all.

    Favors has been playing a more complete game when he's on the court at the same time as Jefferson. In the past he would just be a defensive presence - now he's exerting himself more on offense.

    Right now, Millsap is clearly the odd man out in close games because Carroll and Hayward can adequately guard both 2's and 3's.

    can you imagine sap+hayward+kanter coming off our bench? That's a pretty good bench.

    Favors starts and finishes games. Millsap gets packaged with burks for a PGOTF and another bencher big

    Throw Carroll into that group. Kanter, Sap, Carroll, Hayward and Tins/Watson is a good second unit.
