For the second straight game, the Hawks forward (Paul Millsap) needed to gather his teammates and implore them not to let another late-game lead slip away. He did so during Monday’s win over the Heat.

“I think it’s becoming my job, my 9-to-5,” Millsap said. “We were falling apart a little bit. They were making a run. We didn’t just want to call it quits then. We needed to regroup and get back on the right track.”

(Said coach Mike Budenholzer:) “All the other (stats) are great and we appreciate the rebounds and the blocks but it’s his leadership. Our group needs that going forward.”
