Atlanta Hawks' Paul Millsap says Utah Jazz fans should boo him


 

Atlanta Hawks’ big man Paul Millsap return to the court in a 111-97 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Friday after missing five games with a bruised right knee.

The Hawks, who have now lost six consecutive games and 14 of their last 16, badly need Millsap to quickly return to form.

The Hawks get a bit of a break at the end of their west coast road trip when they take on the Utah Jazz Monday night.

For Millsap, it will be the first time he will return to Utah since signing with the Hawks in the offseason.

Millsap was selected by the Jazz with the 47th overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft and spent the first seven years of his career there.

When Millsap takes the court Monday night, he expects to be booed.

 

Millsap is averaging 17.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.1 blocks per game this season.
