Mike Miller outshined everyone in the Memphis-Denver game tonight. He had one of those lights-out 7-7 FG starts where you think he just won't shoot as much in the second half and finish 9-13 FG. But this time, he just kept shooting, and Memphis exorcised a lot of demons against a Nuggets team that's had their number the past two seasons.

So, Miller's had:
1) a triple-double off the bench.
2) 41 points off the bench.

This obviously isn't an everyday game for Miller, but he has to be considered the frontrunner for Sixth Man of the Year.

For anyone interested, the last time someone had 40+ off the bench was when Darius Miles had that crazy game last year in the Blazers' final game.

Mike Miller Scores 41 Points!

It's a new personal best & he also tied a franchise high against the Nuggets. Impressive. Crazy night in the NBA.

We made a thread about the same topic @ the same time. Please can someone kindly merge. Thanx.

In my understanding, a bench player usually doesn't play 41 minutes. What happened to the guy he replaced?
Eddie Jones played 37 minutes. Battier played 25, because he was contributing nothing on offense.

And a bench player usually doesn't play 41 minutes. Does it matter?

Hey, rawse, get this non-Kobe propaganda off the General board!
If I was a fan of certain other NBA players, this would be the point where I and all the 15-year-old groupies would call you a HATER in all caps. And then hurl our waste at you like chimps at a zoo.

Pretty good numbers, thought Gasol also had a great game. (8-10 18points 4 reb 7 assists)

%63?!? That's crazy

Mike Miller is one of the more talented guys in the league, but he has never shown the interest in displaying it on a consistent basis and he seems more comfortable being relegeted to being a shooter. I personally call him a poor man's Tracy McGrady.

Pfff, who cares if he came off the bench to score 41 points, it took him 24 shots to do it anyways. What bench player takes 24 shots. You don't see Earl Boykins doing that, cuz he knows how to play the team game. Miller almost cost his team the game by not passing the ball, luckily he has good teamates to pick up his 0 assists.































J/K It was a great game, I just wanted to put in a response I always see in Kobe threads after great games. BTW who was guarding him?

0 assists? That's pitiful. And the fact that he played 41 minutes kind of makes the "...off the bench..." part worthless.

Hey this is kind of fun!
