About a year later, Joe Johnson made a plea to two reporters on Williams’ behalf, understanding his teammate’s delicate state of mind. “Take it easy on D-Will,” Johnson said. “He can’t handle it.” But Williams’ struggles weren’t the only reason the foundation crumbled. Brook Lopez broke his foot in December. Andrei Kirilenko was either injured or ineffective. Andray Blatche allegedly showed up drunk to practices, according to multiple sources, and briefly was suspended by the team.
Having earned the nickname “Iso Joe” during his 15-year NBA career, the 35-year-old Johnson has shown in this first-round series against the Clippers that his production is hardly an isolated incident. Johnson scored 14 points in Utah’s 96-92 Game 5 victory over the Clippers on Tuesday night at Staples Center, but that doesn’t properly explain his value. “His baskets, because of the timeliness of them, really lift the group,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “He’s so willing and wanting to take those big shots.”
