Johnson scored 28 points (12-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with five rebounds, five assists and one steal across 35 minutes in Sunday's 105-98 win over the Clippers in Game 4 of the series. Johnson enjoyed one of his most dynamic postseason performances in years, leading all scorers while pacing his team in field-goal attempts. He poured in 12 of his points in the final 7:37 of the fourth quarter to help put the game away. Johnson benefited from Gordon Hayward (illness) sitting out the entire second half, so the veteran could see his offensive responsibilities take a hit in Tuesday's Game 5 if Hayward is feeling healthy.
Johnson supplied 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 34 minutes in Friday's 111-106 loss to the Clippers in Game 3 of the series. Johnson was the only bench player on either side to hit double figures in scoring, and should continue to regularly see around 30 minutes for the duration of the Jazz's postseason run. While the 35-year-old is in the decline phase of his career, his penchant for clutch scoring and ability to serve as a secondary playmaker alongside starting point guard George Hill makes him a valuable bench piece.
Johnson posted 21 points (9-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block over 31 minutes during Saturday's 97-95 victory over the Clippers in Game 1 of the Western Conference first-round playoffs. The veteran came up huge when it mattered most, draining a shot at the buzzer over Jamal Crawford and DeAndre Jordan to secure the series-opening victory for the Jazz. His scoring total also served as a team high for the Jazz, which lost Rudy Gobert to a knee injury on the first play of the game. If Gobert is forced to miss Game 2 on Tuesday night, Johnson could be counted on for additional scoring contributions off the bench once again.
Johnson totaled 19 points (7-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal over 28 minutes in Monday's 105-99 win over the Warriors. The 35-year-old continues to sport the hot hand from the field and he's now posted double-digit scoring in five straight games. Johnson has hit at least 50 percent of his shots in three of those contests and has been particularly lethal from behind the arc, draining 63.3 percent of his 30 three-point attempts in five April games. His experience and scoring contributions off the bench figure to play a pivotal role in the Jazz's postseason fortunes.
Johnson poured in 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and added one rebound and one block over 24 minutes in Saturday's 101-86 loss to the Trail Blazers. Johnson's scoring total led the second unit and represented yet another solid offensive performance on the part of the 16-year veteran. The 35-year-old has hit double digits in the scoring column in all four April contests, averaging 15.3 points over that span. Johnson has also had the hot hand from long range, with Saturday's 3-for-6 effort from behind the arc bringing his three-point success rate to 60.8 percent (14-for-23) over the aforementioned four-game stretch.
