Tyler Johnson played 30 minutes off the bench in Sunday’s win over the Clippers, scoring a season-high 21 points (6-of-11 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), four rebounds, one assist and five 3-pointers.
Johnson has reached double figures in four of the Nets’ six games in the bubble, emerging as a more important member of the rotation than many anticipated him being. After shooting a combined 9-of-36 from the field in his first four games, he’s been far more efficient in his last two. Johnson has shot 11-of-20 from the field and 7-of-14 from three in Brooklyn’s last two outings, wins over the Kings and Clippers. He could see an uptick in minutes during the team’s final two seeding games, as the Nets are locked into the 7-seed in the East. Aug 09 11:52 pm (EST)
