Can't get enough of Joe Johnson's heroics? Nor can we. John Schuhmann, the deep, deep stats guy at NBA.com, proves what we've all thought. There is no one more clutch in the NBA this season. In the last minute of the fourth quarter or overtime, with the game on the line (within three points), Johnson is 9-of-10. That is far and away the best percentage of any player in that situation. Kyrie Irving has two more clutch shots, but has taken 17. Chris Paul has the next highest percentage at 77.8 percent, followed by O.J. Mayo and Shawn Marion, 75 percent. And as Howard Beck points out, He is 4 for 4 in the final 10 seconds when the margin is 3 points or fewer.
Confirmed! He's Joe Cool, Joe Money, Big Shot Joe
