He stunk it up today but he played his 20 minutes + 1 including some garbage minutes
I guess if Triano insists on bringing him off the bench then Johnson is pretty much telling Triano that he will give him 20 - 25 mpg no more. Two early reaching fouls which Johnson knows by now will draw fouls got him an early seat in the first quarter and limited his minutes to 21.
Did some of the other Raptors players tank in support of Johnson not getting the start that Triano said publicly on Friday would be his?
We will never know however, the Raptors should have played a lot better than they did.
What we do know is that Triano should have either kept his mouth shut when asked about who would start with Reggie out at the Friday post game presser and said Johnson. Then wound up publicly humiliating him by starting Dorsey.
When the Raptors starters were introduced Johnson and the regular four starters did the body contact jump, however when Dorsey was introduced Johnson just weakly extended his hand.
Triano f**ked up big time and Johnson was a jerk in response.
