X-Factor: Miller Delivers in Big Spot

Miller
Brad Miller understandably saw his fine early-season numbers drop after Chris Webber returned from his knee injury in March. On Wednesday, in a must-have game for the Kings, Miller proved to be the perfect complement to C-Webb's game-high 28 points, scoring 20 off the bench on 7-of-13 shooting in Sacramento's 87-81 win. Miller added seven rebounds, three assists and two blocks as the Kings tied their West semifinal matchup with the Wolves.
