Wes Johnson’s final line last night: 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and 4 blocks. The dude was four total stats away from having a damn five-by-five. Wes Johnson. Nearly a 5×5. Can you believe that? This is the guy who looked totally washed last season at the grand old age of 29. I was pretty sure he was cooked. Toasted. Done. Now this bust is going out there and being Draymond Green lite, where the “lite” indicates that he has no inclination to kick opposing players in the nards.
It might not have been a 5×5 for Wesley, but it was a scrub-by-five. For those of you who need a refresher course in DTB lingo, a scrub-by-five is where a player gets at least two of every major statistical category. There’s no good term for where the player in question gets at least three of every stat, as Wesley did, but I have been using this one in the interim: “Atleastthreepointsthreereboundsthreeassitsthreestealsandthreeblocks”. Also known as the “Robert Covington”. You can’t call it a “Wes Johnson” because he’s not especially prone to such momentous statistical achievements.
With his yearly good performance out of the way early, I fully expect Wesley to average four points per game on 30% shooting for the rest of the season.
