Milicic has nearly played at an All-Star level over the last six games. In the grand scheme of things, that doesn't mean much until Milicic sustains improved play over a longer period. However, it is worth noting that Milicic has never had a six-game stretch this productive in his entire career. His 99 points dwarf his previous top six-game effort (79 points, per Basketball-Reference.com's game logs), and this is Milicic's best six-game stretch in terms of assists (21, previously 18) and blocks (24, previously 23).
Pelton points out that for the season, Darko's stats are still below replacement level. But Pelton notes his increased shooting percentage and assists, and his decrease in turnovers.
Would it not be ironic if, after seeing Al Jefferson get snubbed for several years, that butt-of-easy-jokes Darko would be the next TWolf to make an appearance in the Extra Game?
