Suns’ Wes Johnson in Rhythm; Confident
It’s just at three-game sample, but shooting guard Wesley Johnson is finally putting up numbers expected of a former first-round draft pick.
Johnson, taken fourth overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2010, has averaged 12 points, 6.3 rebounds and one steal in Phoenix’s three-game winning streak. Included in that stretch, of course, was the 3-point buzzer-beater against San Antonio that sent the game into overtime and resulted in a Suns win.
“It’s really getting into a rhythm and feeling more comfortable out there,” Johnson said. “My confidence is definitely coming back. I always felt like there was place for me on the court. Getting back out there and playing is the main thing.”
