When the Heat signed the 34-year-old Johnson in late February, the addition didn’t receive much attention.

The signing didn’t receive much attention because the veteran small forward literally looked like he was on his last legs—he had averaged just 11.8 points on a very inefficient 40.6 percent from the field in 57 starts with the Brooklyn Nets.

However, in 10 starts with the Heat, Johnson is averaging 15.5 points on a scorching 56.5 percent from the field.

Yes, his performance has literally escalated several notches due to a change of scenery and playing in a more up-tempo offense. Even if Chris Bosh is sidelined for the postseason, Johnson gives this team a legit second or third scoring option and makes the Heat a scary team in the playoffs.
