Joe Johnson is playing like the old Joe Johnson, one of the best players in the league when he's playing like that.

Since this is the only thread I could ask this in without making a new topic for no reason, is the Hawks still the only team in the league to beat all 3 of the Heat, Bulls, and Thunder this season?
