Joe Johnson’s slow and methodical approach on the court didn’t translate very well in Saturday night’s 3-point contest.

The Brooklyn Nets’ All-Star guard took too much time on his shots and didn’t finish all of his racks, scoring just 11 points.

Johnson decided to choose the right wing for his moneyball rack.

His season 3-point shooting splits: 45.8 percent left corner; 48.3 left wing; 33.3 top of the key; 25.0 right wing; 40.7 right corner.

Johnson went 1-for-5 on his right wing shots.

Johnson scored eight points in the 2005 3-point contest.

He looked much better practicing at the team facility earlier this week.

Johnson will have a chance to redeem himself in Sunday night’s All-Star Game as an Eastern Conference reserve.
