Lowry is not only operating in tight quarters but throwing dimes to the bigs in this case Amir Johnson for the solid lay-in! #rtz

Payal Doshi

Amir Johnson with a respectable 15 points and counting. He’s doing the little things in the paint to help the @raptors. #rtz

Mike Ganter

As usual, the Amir Johnson concerns will not keep him out of the game. He found some tape ... or something. He starts with the same group.

Eric Koreen

Amir Johnson stays in the starting lineup.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors say Amir Johnson is questionable for tonight's game with a sore right shoulder. It's been bothering him for most of the season

Ryan Wolstat

Patrick Patterson is +61 for January, Amir Johnson is -95. Not huge on +/-, but huge difference. Season total is even more striking.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson was -21. Patrick Patterson was +26. Have defended Amir for a long time, but he’s not right and they need to shake it up.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson is fine, Casey just happier with Patterson’s play. Patterson’s been great on offensive boards.

Eric Smith

patterson starts the 2nd half in place of amir johnson.

Josh Lewenberg

Patterson starts the second half in place of Amir Johnson

Steve Aschburner

Amir Johnson joins LeBron James tonight in doing backward somersaults after jump shots. #analytics

Payal Doshi

Amir Johnson doesn’t do it quite like James Johnson but does a summersault of his own! #rtz #acrobatics

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson wearing shirt under jersey tonight. His upper body was banged up in recent game (not sure exactly where).

Adi Joseph

Amir Johnson should have been on Tyreke Evans instead of flailing in help defense. RT @talkhoops: vine.co/v/OjtVIArQwOZ

Josh Lewenberg

Amir Johnson has 5 double-doubles on the season - 3 of them in the last 4 games. He's starting to come around after bumpy start to the year

Jason Calmes

Gordon misses an open three, going the other way delayed fastbreak results in Amir Johnson putback dunk. 5 point swing 80-73

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson has had a lot of spring today. Has been great offensively and a deterrent at times on defence.

Ryan Wolstat

"We sat amongst each other and said, 'we have to get this win tonight, we can't keep sliding down.’” - Amir Johnson

Ryan Wolstat

“My job is to help everybody out there, another help guy, that's pretty big for us.” Amir Johnson on what James Johnson brings to the table.

Eric Smith

"Scrape the floor, Grim Reaper" ... Amir Johnson drains the corner 3 to put the #Raptors up 97-78 with 5:47 to go. #Celtics #RTZ @fan590

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson with a three. He is now 7-for-8 from three at home this season, 1-for-11 on the road. Bizarre stat.

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas replaces Hansbrough, but Amir Johnson has five fouls.

Payal Doshi

Amir Johnson is active on both ends of the floor for the @raptors. The heart and soul of the team is attempting to do the intangibles. #rtz

Eric Smith

the @Toronto Raptors will start (vs BOS): James Johnson, Amir Johnson, Terrence Ross, Jonas Valanciunas & Kyle Lowry. The game on @fan590. #RTZ

Eric Pincus

Toronto Raptors locked in Amir Johnson + Greg Stiemsma -only $5 mil of Johnson's $7 mil was guaranteed @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/toronto-raptor…

Eric Koreen

BTW, Amir Johnson has the best net rating of any non-DeRozan starter, and by quite a bit. Bench his ass!

Ryan Wolstat

Focus on Amir Johnson’s stats always amazes me Yes, would be nice if they were better, but his D and screens make team go. Lost without him.

Peter Vecsey

Win or lose, Dwane Casey gets my top coach vote 4 calling Amir Johnson post up play, resulting in game tying basket w 4 sec left, earning OT

Joe Freeman
