The rest of the Pacers said Hibbert's benching was the result of a poor matchup against Atlanta's Paul Millsap and Pero Antic. "I was surprised just because it's never happened," forward Paul George said about Hibbert's benching, "but it was just a tough matchup for Roy. To have a five-man who can stretch the floor, put the ball on the ground and shoot perimeter shots. It was just a tough cover because Roy's great at protecting the rim and being in the paint and Antic really had him on the perimeter the whole night." ESPN.com

Paul Millsap: The forward has been on a tear since missing five games with a right knee contusion. He is averaging 20.3 points in the past six games, including a game-high 28 points Monday. Millsap scored nine of the Hawks’ last 11 points of the second quarter. He started the third quarter by scoring the team’s first eight points for a run of 17 of 19 points. “I was just being aggressive, attacking the basket and got a few layups and that opened up the 3-point shot,” Millsap said. “I made a few 3’s. More than that, just being aggressive.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Hawks power forward was largely ignored in fan voting as he did not register in the top 15 among Eastern Conference frontcourt players. However, Millsap is compiling numbers that can’t be ignored by NBA coaches as they fill out ballots to select the reserves for next month’s All-Star Game. “If he is not an All-Star, I don’t know what I’m going to do,” said DeMarre Carroll, Millsap’s teammate with the Jazz the past two seasons and now with the Hawks. “I’m going to go to the league and talk to them. He deserves to be on the All-Star team. We’ve been hurt and he has led us.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Credit the Hawks’ Paul Millsap for trying to make the right play, he slides over and tries to draw the charge on LeBron James. But he just ends up in another LeBron highlight. After the game — where the Heat beat the Hawks in OT — in a televised interview LeBron joked about having a couple of these poster dunks the last couple games (he destroyed Ben McLemore the other night) saying “I guess guys thought I lost it or something, but I feel pretty good.” NBCSports.com

It didn’t take long for Paul Millsap to find a new home with the Atlanta Hawks this off-season. Now all the NBA forward has to do is part ways with his old one — the home he’s trying to sell in Sandy, UT. A 2006 second-round pick, Millsap spent seven seasons with the Utah Jazz before inking a two-year, $19 million contract with the Hawks in July. He waited all of two months before listing the gargantuan 11,797-square-foot home outside Salt Lake City. Located 19 miles south of EnergySolutions Arena, the Millsap mansion sits on a secluded one-acre lot at the mouth of Cottonwood Canyon. The home has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms and luxury features that include 10-foot vaulted ceilings, a walkout basement with a movie theater, and the one amenity no basketball player should be without: the indoor hardwood.

One source familiar with the situation said the Houston Rockets could trade center Omer Asik by Thursday. The Sixers, Atlanta Hawks and New Orleans Pelicans have all been considered ongoing candidates. The latest candidate is the Celtics, but according to a source close to the team's front office, they're a long shot. Boston likes Asik, but is not willing to move forwards Jared Sullinger or Jeff Green, who the Rockets have been after steadily for a long time. Two sources said "it makes a lot of sense" for Asik to be traded to the Hawks for power forward Paul Millsap. In that scenario, Asik would slip into the starting center position in Atlanta alongside Al Horford, and Millsap would become the starting power forward in Houston next to Dwight Howard.
