Johnson, Improved Nets Clobber 76ers
Joe Johnson was the star of the show on Monday night and his 10 three-point shots led the Brooklyn Nets to a 130-94 pounding of the Philadelphia 76ers. The Nets have won four of their last five contests.
Johnson finished 10 for 14 from downtown and scored 29 points in the third quarter alone. He finished with 37 on the night.
The Nets, who never trailed in the game, handed Philadelphia their seventh-straight loss. The Nets assisted on 74.5 percent of their made field goals and the team's 35 assists were a season-high.
Up next for the improving Brooklyn Nets is a tilt with the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.
