Joe Johnson had 26 points, a season-high nine assists and five 3-pointers on 10-of-19 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Nuggets.

He clearly enjoyed facilitating the action with Deron Williams sidelined and this was his first 20-point game since Jan. 25. Williams will be back at some point after the break, but Johnson is playing well enough to be an automatic fantasy start, even when Williams is in the lineup. And in one of the craziest stats of the night, the Nets had a team-total of nine assists on Monday, which their shooting guard matched by himself tonight.
