Patty Mills' excellent individual performances helped Australia reach the semi-finals of the FIBA World Cup

Patty Mills has never been able to establish himself as a regular starter in the NBA, although the point guard was among the best players on show over the past two weeks. The 31-year-old started the tournament with a 15-point performance against Canada and only failed to top 20 points in one other game.Β 

Mills' most notable performances included a 30-point display against France and a tournament-high 34 during Australia's agonizing semi-final defeat to Spain. Only two other players finished the tournament averaging more points than Mills, and the guard also shot an impressive 50% from the field.

Mills was also his team's chief creator with 3.9 assists and Australia will be confident of competing at the 2020 Olympics if Mills can replicate the same sort of performances that he exhibited in China.
