Paul Millsap displayed his all-round skills with a double-double in the Denver Nuggets rout of the Los Angeles Lakers.
The 33-year-old forward scored 20 points – 16 of which came in a dominant first-half performance – and grabbed 11 rebounds as he saw off all comers.
Paul Millsap hits a double-double but was all praise for the Denver Nuggets defence after their victory over the LA Lakers.
A dunk over JaVale McGee, a smooth jump shot over LeBron James and a tough finish through contact with Tyson Chandler helped set the Nuggets up for a record 32-point victory over the Lakers.
Millsap was equally impressive at the other end, emphatically swatting away a Brandon Ingram attempt just before the interval.
