Nets’ Kidd Wants Joe Johnson as His Closer
The Nets acquired two future Hall of Famers, including a player, Paul Pierce, known for his clutch performances.
But Jason Kidd said Tuesday that Joe Johnson – the offseason afterthought on this stacked roster – will get the first call on the final possessions.
“If you’re into analytics, you look at Joe Johnson as the clear-cut guy taking the last-second shot,” Kidd said. “He was 9-for-10 with 24 seconds or less. So that would be your guy who is the closer.”
