Oct. 23 8:02 PM PT9:02 PM MT10:02 PM CT11:02 PM ET3:02 GMT11:02 8:02 PM MST10:02 PM EST7:02 UAE (+1)05:0223:02 ET10:02 PM CTNaN:� - James Johnson scored eight points Monday on 4-of-6 shooting as the Miami Heat topped the Atlanta Hawks 104-93.

Analysis: With Hassan Whiteside out with a bruised knee, Johnson took over as Miami's defensive post presence by finishing one block shy of a single-game high. The versatile forward has grabbed eight rebounds in each of the Heat's first two games as well, though he'll need a few other injuries to become anything more than a complementary scorer.
