Millsap helped Denver protect a close lead by scoring on layups in back-to-back possessions with less than four minutes remaining. He added another basket and free throw as Denver blocked Atlanta’s comeback attempt.
Following the game, Hawks forward Taurean Prince hugged Millsap and told him he appreciated Millsap’s help in his career.
I almost broke down in tears, Millsap said. It means a lot.
But over the past two weeks against the 49ers and Redskins, Lawrence and Irving have been a devastating duo up front off the edge, and by no coincidence, Tyrone Crawford has played much better at the other end. After recording two sacks against Kirk Cousins, Irving has five sacks in his first three games of the season. Lee keeps cleaning up against the run on the second level, and Smith in his second year is improving with every start in the middle.
The second half was not just bad, it was unbelievable.
Ricky Rubio saw his shot begin to fall in the second half and finished with 20 points. Rudy Gobert added 17 points, 12 rebounds, six blocks and six assists.
Game Mens Ben Ijalana Jersey Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavs with a season-high 18 points and J.J. Barea added 17 off the bench, all in the first half.

This team is totally different, Buffalo linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. We don’t hold onto that, that whole 17 Marcus Sherels Youth jersey years isn’t on us.
He’s right. And this year’s Bills are dominant in a category that is the most important stat in the NFL except for wins — turnover differential. Buffalo leads the league with a plus-14 margin, 17 takeaways (tied with the Baltimore Ravens for most in the league) and only three giveaways (tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the least).
