James Johnson played 31 minutes off the bench and finished with 15 points (6-of-14 from the field) including one triple, eight rebounds, six assists, three steals and five turnovers in a win against the Rockets on Tuesday.
That seems like a typical James Johnson line as he’s posting third round value over the last eight games with 15.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.3 blocks and 2.4 treys on 50.0% from the field in 30.2 minutes. Josh McRoberts (foot) remains without a timetable to return, but Luke Babbitt has gotten the starts. That shouldn’t matter since Johnson has been producing and getting the minutes whether with the starters or second unit.
