James Johnson was all over the place in 36 minutes on Saturday, scoring 15 points to go with eight rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer.
Johnson is one of the few Heat players who brings the physicality necessary to slow down Ben Simmons and even took some time to get in the rookie's grill. He's a great Swiss army knife player and the only real knock on him is a lack of shooting touch. JJ had a great open look from deep with the Heat putting together a comeback charge but came up short, though he did bully his way to the rack for some nice buckets at other times. His occasional offensive shortcomings aren't nearly enough to outweigh the good he does everywhere else on the court.
