BROOKLYN—Johnson gets his shot twice on Tuesday: first, coming off a curl screen at the end of regulation, splitting teammates Wallace and Andray Blatche to swish a catch-and-shoot, game-tying three with 1.3 seconds remaining; second, off a straight up 1-4 flat isolation intended to give Johnson all the room he needs, enough to drop in a tightly contested pullup from the free-throw line. The Nets beat the Bucks in overtime, 113-111.
Those two makes boost Johnson's late-game statistics to staggering levels of efficiency. According to NBA.com/Stats, when the Nets are within three points of their opponent in the final 30 seconds of regulation or overtime, Johnson is now 8-of-9 from the field, including 4-of-4 in the final 10 seconds.
