Paul Millsap is fresh off a 32-point, 14-rebound, seven-assist game against Sacramento as he's starting for the injured Carlos Boozer (right calf).
Tonight, Millsap said he will start against Dirk Nowitzki defensively.
"I just try to be aggressive without fouling,'' Millsap said after the Jazz's shootaround this morning. "The key is not to pick up two quick fouls against him.''
Jazz coach Jerry Sloan knows firsthand how tough Nowitzki can be.
"He can win a game by himself, like he did down there,'' Sloan said.
That would be the first meeting this season, when Dirk had 40 against the Jazz, including 29 in the fourth quarter.
