NBA Playoffs 2014: Amir Johnson spins & scores (GIF)

After splitting the first two games of their first round playoff series in the Air Canada Center in Toronto, the Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors headed to the Barclays Center in Brookyln, New York for game 3 Friday. The Nets came away with a victory to take a 2-1 series lead, making Sunday evening’s game 4 extremely important. If the Nets can win, they’ll take a commanding 3-1 lead back to Toronto for game 4 while if the Raptors are victorious, they will take back home court advantage.

Both teams need a few extra contributions and the Raptors haven’t gotten theirs from power forward Amir Johnson.

When Johnson isn’t flopping like he did earlier in the night, he is a good and effective player.

On one paticular play, Johnson got the ball at the top of the key and put a beautiful spin move on Andray Blatche to get the bucket.
