Paul Millsap came home to Denver to play with the Nuggets, signing a 3 year contract to play alongside Nikola Jokic in the frontcourt.

While he’s had a few days of training camp to get accustomed to his new teammates, tonight was the first game action he’s seen against an opposing team, and it was a great test against the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

Millsap was his normal self, making smart rotations on defense, dribbling the ball up the court, and making great basketball plays that helped his team win. You’ll want to check out his highlights, the first of many great games from the veteran leader of this team.
