Five Things Joe Johnson Instantly Brings to the Miami Heat

7 Min Read

3. Scoring Ability


Simply put, the Heat need more scoring.

While the team has improved in that department by playing a faster style of pace in the month of February, Miami still ranks second-to-last in points per game with just 96.9 points per contest.

Just as discouraging is the fact that the Heat rank dead last in the league in three-point shooting with a 31.8 three-point shooting percentage.

Johnson’s overall field goal percentage (40.6 percent) may not be pleasant on the eyes, but his three-point shooting percentage (37.1 percent) sure is. In fact, with the exception of Tyler Johnson, it would be the best three-point shooting percentage of anyone on the team.

All the swingman has to do is find the right spots on the court to catch and shoot and he’ll fill his role nicely with the Heat.
