James Johnson rounds out box score as Heat win in Portland

Miami Heat forward James Johnson scored 15 points (6-of-11 field goals, 2-of-2 free throws) with 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 3 blocks, 1 3-pointer, and 2 turnovers in 26.7 minutes of a 118-108 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

What It Means:

Johnson was replaced by Kelly Olynyk in the starting lineup, but that didn't prevent him from turning in one of his best lines of the season, as he set a season-high in blocks and reached his season-best in steals for the fifth time. The 31-year-old had scored in single digits in six of the previous seven games, hadn't blocked anything in the previous four, and failed to record a steal in the previous two outings. He only logged 11.3 minutes in the previous contest, so it's not clear what type of role Johnson will play on Friday in Sacramento against the Kings.

Johnson scored a season-high 39.7 FanDuel points in the win. He's averaging 17.0 FanDuel points through 36 games overall.
