Joe Johnson was unhappy with what he perceived to be a flop by LeBron James during Monday's Game 4 loss to the Heat.

Johnson drove towards the basket with the Nets down three at the end of the game and was upset with the no-call on what he thought was James' sixth personal foul. "I wasn't necessarily trying to draw the foul on him but I thought he was aggressive," Johnson said after the game. "So I was just trying to use his aggressiveness against him. He flopped that last one." Regardless of what Johnson thinks, he didn't get the call and he and his Nets teammates have their backs against the wall as they Heat to Miami for a must-win Game 5 on Wednesday night.
