Patty Mills scored 24 of his 29 points in the second half on Wednesday, finishing with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in a tough win over the Blazers.
Mills is on fire right now, as Tony Parker sits with a back injury, and has scored 25 or more points in three of his last four games, including a season-high 32 points a week ago Saturday. Over his last five, which includes a six-point game when he dinged up his ankle, Mills is averaging 21.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 3-pointers. Parker will eventually be back from his back injury, but Gregg Popovich may see fit to limit his minutes with Mills playing so well. It's hard to say how long this run will last, but you might as well pick him up and plug him in while he's hot.
