Nets’ Cam Johnson Takes Pride in Consistency and HealthNovember 14, 2023
Cam Johnson is glad to be back and playing with the Nets, indicating he feels good physically after regaining consecutive game appearances for the first time this season. He acknowledges feeling “real good” to come back-to-back after sitting out seven games with a calf strain. The sharpshooting forward is aiming to find his rhythm after being in and out of the Nets’ lineup. Johnson is attempting to continue his sustained success to be a building block of the Nets. Dennis Smith Jr. lauds Johnson as one of the best shooters since entering the league. His return is a boost for the embattled Brooklyn team, with other players dealing with injuries. Ben Simmons’ tempo will open up opportunities for open three-pointers, according to Johnson, as he plans to capitalize on these chances. Johnson downplays that playing in the World Cup led to a slow start in the NBA season, emphasizing the need to find a rhythm and push through adversities in the game.
