Brooklyn Nets, not given much of a chance of winning Saturday's game one of the best-of-seven eastern conference first-round series at the 76ers, took an early commanding lead and won 111-102.
Johnson, who averaged 3.9 points in 51 games, was inactive and apologised for his mistake.

Sure, he could shoot better as the series goes on (as could the Sixers as a whole after they went a paltry 3-for-25 from 3 on Saturday). And then Ben Simmons called out Philadelphia for, well, being Philadelphia.
Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert combined for 41 of Brooklyn's franchise playoff-record 59 bench points. At the moment, most people were understandably either laughing or confused at the sight of two players looking at a phone while their team was getting upset in Game 1 of the Playoffs. And Davis added 12 points and 16 rebounds, his energy making Embiid look lethargic at times. Dinwiddie poured on 18 points on 6/14 shooting, including going 4-for-5 from downtown.
The 76ers did get 13 points off the bench from Boban Marjanovic, but that wasn't enough to overcome other poor performances.
For the 76ers, Jimmy Butler scored a playoff career-high 34 points, but he didn't receive much help. Butler finished one rebound short of a double-double as well.
