After not dishing out five assists all season prior, Johnson has now done so twice out of the three contests Paul has missed. With Paul shelved for approximately the next six weeks, Johnson's rest-of-season production is trending upwards. On a Phoenix team that ranks fifth league-wide in total assist per game at 27.1, Johnson should benefit in the free-flowing offensive. To boot, he's shooting a stout 42.9 percent from beyond the arc -- the seventh highest figure in the league. Holding a season average of 12.1 points per game this season, Johnson has averaged 19.7 points per game since the All-Star break.
