I guess Johnson was just following coaches orders
Some small game notes:
Amir Johnson with 12 points on 5-7 shooting, 4 of his field-goals were assisted and one was on a put-back. This guy takes the least amount of bad shots on the team. His offensive rebounding rate this year is at a mind-boggling 21.1%. Four of his personal fouls were against Dwight Howard, how did Howard fare on the eight FTs resulting from those fouls? He missed all 8. Is that the game right there?
Triano talks about the need to foul Howard more, at about the 45 second mark in the video
