While the Brooklyn Nets struggle to find consistency, Joe Johnson seems to be locating his.

Johnson scored a season-high 34 points in Sunday's game against the Detroit Pistons, making it the most points he's scored in a single game during his two years with the Nets. In the last five games, he's averaging 18.8 points per game while shooting .55% from long range and 47% overall.

Watch the video to see how impressed point guard Deron Williams is with how much Johnson has stepped up in the absence of several key players due to injury.
