He began the week with a season-high 32 points on April 4 in a 111-98 win over the Reno Bighorns, before finishing with two double-doubles to end the regular season on April 6 and 7.

In 41 games, 33 starts, for the D-Fenders this season, Millsap is averaging 19.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.9 steals and 33.0 minutes. The 2012 NBA D-League All-Star has scored in double-figures 38 times, recorded five double-doubles and two triple-doubles.
