Lang Greene

Reserve point guard Dennis Schroder w/ 11 shot attempts in 12 minutes. All-Stars Al Horford and Paul Millsap with 8 each in 30 and 27 min

Rick Noland

No Atlanta player more than 13 pts (Schroder). Teague 12 on 5-16, Millsap 4 on 2-8

Mike Prada

Unsung heroes are Shumpert (physical with Korver) and Thompson (shutting down Millsap). Didn’t think either would be up to the task.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavaliers lead 54-49, at halftime. Passing clinic for point guard LeBron James in that quarter. He's got 17/4/4. Millsap still struggling.

Chris Fedor

Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague are KILLING the Hawks right now. 3-13 combined from the field and some baffling decisions.

Rick Noland

Horford not any better than Millsap so far

Ethan J. Skolnick

Never seen Paul Millsap look this bad

Lang Whitaker

Hawks guards getting plenty of looks but Cavs have been shutting down Horford/Millsap

John Schuhmann

Millsap post-ups just go nowhere. A waste of 5-6 seconds most of the time.

Jeff Zillgitt

Al Horford hasn't attempted a shot. Paul Millsap is 1-for-5.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Have always liked Paul Millsap as a player, but this isn't the way you want to go into free agency. Looks overmatched.

Rick Noland

Teague 1-4, Millsap 1-5

Kris Willis

Teague and Millsap a combined 2-9 from the field

Ethan J. Skolnick

Paul Millsap was 1-for-5 in first quarter. Al Horford didn't take a shot. Tristan Thompson is the one who has looked like the All-Star.

Rick Noland

Is Paul Millsap even playing?

Kris Willis

Millsap is a foot taller but I can’t look at that No. 4 uniform and not think about Spud Webb

Lang Whitaker

So far Bud has subbed out Millsap and Horford but DeMarre is still in the game.

John Schuhmann

Millsap has been pretty awful. The nonchalant-ness of his jumper makes it look like he's just out of it, but I guess that's normal.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Paul Millsap needs to find his game quickly for Atlanta

Amin Elhassan

Beautiful set by Atlanta. Teague dribble to wing, hits Korver on zipper cut to the top of the key, Millsap then pins down for Teague curling

Chris Fedor

Reporter: "Do you anticipate Paul Millsap playing any small forward tonight?" Mike Budenholzer: "No."

Chris Vivlamore

Me: Points of the film session today? Millsap: Be better. Me: How would you do that? Millsap: I don't have enough time to explain it all.

Chris Vivlamore

Paul Millsap on if Cavs have anyone who can stop Jeff Teague: "I doubt it, to be honest with you."

Joe Vardon

Paul Millsap said "I wouldn't mind" guarding LeBron James if DeMarre Carroll can't play. What will Hawks do? bit.ly/1Knf4AB

Jaryd Wilson

"We've got to be smart about it. They (also) have Thompson and Mozgov." - @Paul Millsap on matching up with LeBron http://t.co/ivBR51HOCL

Ethan J. Skolnick

Paul Millsap smiles, pauses when a reporter says that LeBron sticks arm out on offense. "Strong-arms... Yeah."

Joe Vardon

Millsap said "I wouldn't mind" guarding LeBron but "we have to be smart about it"

Ethan J. Skolnick

Paul Millsap says he wouldn't be mind guarding LeBron from start, "but we've got to be smart about it" especially with Cavs starting bigs

Ethan J. Skolnick

Paul Millsap on DeMarre Carroll: "A sigh of relief, looked worse than it was... Knowing DeMarre, he wants to be out there."

Ryan Wolstat

Wall, Butler, Millsap, Horford all easily could have earned a spot on one of the All-NBA teams. Pau Gasol just a weird choice

Chris Fedor

ICYMI: 5 Observations - Janitor mops the floor with Millsap, Kyrie Irving growing frustrated & Bench Mob was one man cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Mike McGraw

If there was 4th team All-NBA, Jimmy Butler would have been on it. Joined Kawhi Leonard, Wall, Horford, Millsap at top of others rec votes

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks' Paul Millsap, Al Horford, Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver all got All-NBA team votes. None made three teams.

Lang Greene

Not sure why Paul Millsap’s primary defensive strategy on LeBron late was to smother 40 ft from basket. Led to a couple of easy drive-bys

Lang Greene

Game One ECF. Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov (24 points, 21 rebounds). Al Horford and Paul Millsap (29 points, 14 rebounds)

Chris Fedor

#Cavs The Janitor mops the floor with Millsap, frustration building for Kyrie Irving & taking away Hawks' specialty cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Chris Fedor

Buried story of tonight's game: Tristan Thompson completely outplayed Paul Millsap IMO.

Mary Schmitt Boyer/Jodie Valade

Kyrie plays 'Call of Duty' and LeBron laughs it up when Paul Millsap guards him: Game 1 broadcast diary. cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Jason Walker

Millsap forced a violation and a blocked shot on his defense and the Cavs had missed 8 straight, but yes, let's focus on this one moment.'

Mike Prada

Says a lot about the effectiveness of the Cavs’ strategy that Millsap can fall down and still contest LeBron at the rim.

Adi Joseph

Millsap has shut Reggie and me up about his defense on LeBron.

Mike Prada

Millsap on LeBron is actually working.

Jason Walker

Reggie mocks Millsap for defending LeBron, shot clock violation happens. Still laughing.

Mike Prada

If Millsap is to guard LeBron — and I’m for it for stretches — he needs to sag off more.

Adi Joseph

I'd so much rather have Carroll or Horford than Millsap on LeBron. And Millsap is a good defender.
