Stud: Keldon Johnson taking on the scoring load

Despite struggling from beyond the arc, Keldon scored efficiently from other areas on the hardwood. Hopefully, his three-point percentage will return to its usual level soon. Johnson provides infectious energy and effort that gets offense churning, and that trait can be a valuable asset for the Spurs once everyone gets on the same page. As the season progresses, we can anticipate more impressive performances from him.

Keldon Johnson has displayed a budding ability to generate offense off the dribble and showcased some playmaking skills. The team needs someone who can step up when nothing is falling through the net for anyone else. Taking another leap could make or break his future with this core. If he can become someone the Spurs can rely on to collapse the defense, he will likely be around for the long haul.
