Joe Johnson supposedly had a bad season last year. As he adjusted to playing in a new city --and with the best point guard and best center he'd teamed with in years-- Johnson's numbers were down. Scoring average, shooting percentages, PER, all down from his Hawk days. Well, except one.
As Devin Kharpertian writes Monday, no one in the NBA came close to Joe Cool as the seconds ticked down....
Johnson admits he's a shooting machine and when asked what takes over in those last seconds, he says simply "instinct." But it's more than that, he tells Kharpertian.
