Jazz and Paul Millsap in a slump
Is Paul Millsap struggling because the Jazz are playing poorly as a team, or are the Jazz struggling because Millsap isnít dominating games the way he did earlier this season?
One thing is clear.
Millsapís numbers have dipped recently and the Jazz canít afford that trend to continue ó not if they want to remain in the Western Conference playoff race during the final 38 games of the season.
Heading into Friday nightís game against Washington at EnergySolutions Arena, Utah has lost five of its last six.
In those defeats, Millsap averages 10.2 points and nine rebounds.
On the other hand, Millsap made only 18 of his 50 field-goal attempts. He journeyed to the free-throw line seven times in 114 minutes.
