Johnson has definitely made the most out of every opportunity given to him this season. After being sent down for a tour of duty with the Pacers’ D-League affiliate, Fort Wayne Mad Ants, together with fellow rookie Miles Plumlee, Johnson scored a game-high 25 points Thursday in a win over the Santa Cruz Warriors, before being recalled to rejoin the team on Friday against Boston where he contributed 7 points in 12 minutes of action. “It’s helped me out a lot just getting a chance to get reps,” Johnson said regarding his stints with the Mad Ants in the D-League this season. “It was definitely good to go down there and play, and then now get a chance to play with these (Pacers) guys.” NBA.com
