He missed the next six games with knee soreness, but once he was healthy he went back to the bench for 23 games. When Nate McMillan finally arrived at the realization that starting Monta Ellis beside Teague wasn’t working after back-to-back losses to the Lakers and Jazz, Miles became the starting two guard.
