Johnson nets 5 of East's 163 points in ASG

Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson had five points in 10 minutes in Sunday night’s NBA All-Star Game.

Johnson, selected as an Eastern Conference reserve to the surprise of many, including himself, went 2-for-7 from the field (1-for-6 from 3-point range).

The East beat the West, 163-155, in New Orleans.

Johnson, a seven-time All-Star, had just 11 points in Saturday night’s 3-point Shootout -- the lowest total of any participant in the contest.

Rookie Mason Plumlee had 20 points, seven rebounds, four steals and a block in Friday night’s Rising Stars Challenge.

The Nets (24-27) resume their seven-game road trip Wednesday night in Utah.
