Video: Joe Johnson sends it to overtime, hits game winner

Mar 21, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

Joe Johnson had 22 points, but was just 7-of-19 shooting and seemed to have little impact on the game — until the game was on the line.

He knocked down a good look three to send it to overtime, then there does a good job of using his body to create space and knocking down the little fadeaway that proved to be the game winner. Johnson gets a lot of grief in some circles for the size of his contract (what was he going to so, say no?). And while I’ll agree that is not a deal I would have given him, the fact is he is a very good player and a guy who can make big plays.

    No mention of Irving’s near Triple Double? (A Rebound and Assist shy.)

    And if Gee puts back an easy layup at the end of the game to win it, is Johnson still a good player? Or is it only worth talking about because his shot won this game?

    Thanks Joe, we’re trying to get a lottery pick here.

    I don’t know if anyone has noticed this, but Joe Johnson is clutch as hell….
