(Joe) Johnson, prior to Game 6 on Friday night at Barclays Center, agreed with (Coach Jason) Kidd that he does not get enough calls.

“I never get calls, man,” Johnson said before Friday’s morning shootaround. “It doesn’t bother me, though. I just try to play through it. At the end of the day, playing to the refs is not gonna make it any easier.”

Johnson was asked about trying to sell contact in order to get calls.

“I’m not that good at it,” he said. “I’m not a flopper. I can’t sell it, I guess.”
