NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson's streak of games with at least one field goal ended at 937 games after he missed all three of his shots and was held scoreless in 23 minutes during Monday night's 109-90 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night at Barclays Center.

It had been the longest active streak in the NBA and, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, was the eighth-longest in NBA history.

"I don't even know what to tell you," a frustrated Johnson said when asked to put the streak in perspective.

LeBron James now has the longest active streak at 854 games, according to Elias, and the Spurs' Tim Duncan holds the all-time record, having made a field goal in 1,310 consecutive games.

The last time Johnson had been held without a field goal was Dec. 6, 2003, when he was with the Phoenix Suns in a game against New Jersey, according to data from basketball-reference.com.

Now 34, Johnson was just 22 that night and went scoreless on 0-for-4 shooting in 17 minutes.

Johnson has had just 19 games played without a field goal in his 15-year career.

He is currently 52nd on the all-time scoring list, just 51 points shy of 19,000 for his career.

"That's sad; he's a great pro, but obviously it wasn't his best night," Nets coach Tony Brown said. "We were trying to do some things to start the third and get him some opportunities, but he came up short. Unfortunately, I hate to be the one to break that, but I wish I could've gotten him some more touches."
