Nuggets’ Paul Millsap Hoping Team will Be Top 5 Defensively

Published

Denver Nuggets veteran forward Paul Millsap has defense on his mind as the team gears up for the 2018-2019 regular season and is hoping that the team can finish among the best in the NBA in defense.

“I’ve always aimed high,” Millsap said, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic. “I’m looking to crack the top five in defense. I want to say it’s hard to do, but it’s really not. You get guys locked in on the same page and staying disciplined throughout the course of the game, you can be a top-five defensive team.”

It would be a giant leap for a Denver team that has finished near the bottom of the league defensively that past few seasons, making them one of the worst defensive teams in the league.

“I believe, with the team that we have, we can scramble and get guys off the (3-point) line, rebound and run,” Millsap said. “Everything is based on practice. If we drill those habits and drill guys not stopping on one or two possessions, continue to make the necessary plays and get a rebound, you can drill that. It can be a habit you create going into the season.”
