Tyler Johnson scored 21 points in 38 minutes on Tuesday night, finishing Miami’s overtime loss at 8-of-15 from the field to go with three rebounds, four assists, three steals, a block and two triples.
He may not be starting but it’s clear that Johnson will be playing a lot no matter what. This was also just his second game back from injury so it’s entirely possible he retakes his old starting two guard job. Johnson committed zero turnovers for a sterling 9-cat line but was an uncharacteristic 3-of-7 from the charity stripe. That’s easy to brush aside for a guy who’s shooting .847 from the free throw line this season, and Johnson should be back in all lineups for the stretch run.
