    Is it possible that millsap is playing so well right now because he isn't worried about favors taking minutes from him?

    If so, then should we expect another slump when favors returns?

    This was a fun game to watch, except for Foye guarding Kobe, which is the dumbest ****ing thing I've ever seen considering we have 3 legitimate defenders to guard Kobe (Marvin, Gordon, Demarre)

    Millsap slumps seem to coincide with unreported injuries that he is playing through, but who knows.
    Chop it!!!

    He'll definitely fill out a little more, but he doesn't need to grow. It's his frame that's impressive. I heard several Laker fans in my section say things like, "That dude is huge" and "Holy ****" (after seeing Kanter bull under the hoop.) He's a physical specimen with a rare NBA body for sure.

    I like it.

    I went to the jazz open scrimmage just before the season started and was able to sit way up front and i thought the same thing.

    A) Millsap was just in a slump and better than he was playing; B) He's had nice matchups the last two nights to break him out of it; C) Ty definitely rolled with Sap as the focal point of the post offense tonight (mostly to let Sap work on Jamison, partially to keep Dwight out of the paint.) Sap's got his groove back for sure.

    Goodnight everyone.

    Great game! and now im looking forward to the next one big time...... the team has been very fun to watch the last few games due to everyone getting involved and guys like carroll knowing thier spot in the rotations.... and mo doing a good job of running the team. (which might the most important thing)

    Enes Kanter: "I kind of live in the paint, man. Come on. I wonít get soft. Donít worry about that."

    What did you do?

    Millsap is playing better because we are actually running plays for him. That is the only reason.

    Most of the season Jefferson was the only option on offense than people would score if he was double teamed. Millsap was sitting on the right block doing nothing all season.
    The team is starting to finally realize that Jefferson should be the 2nd or 3rd option. They are finally running more pick and roll again. Which we have been missing and Millsap has been very good at that.

    Hopefully the next game we do the same and keep running the pick and roll. Trade Jefferson to the Rockets for protected 1st round pick.

    He is done growing vertically but still filling out. Dwight was still pretty skinny at 20, Kanter has the frame to be possibly the strongest player in the league if he keeps being a gym rat.

    If he can keep this fleet-ness about him and get up to 265, then watch out.
    If that comes with a dependable 18 footer, then we have an all-star

    We'll see both of those .. whether that's an all-star, I don't really care, but he'll accomplish both.
