Johnson scored a season-high 33 points in the victory.
Late in the game, Kevin Durant was ejected from the game after picking up two technical fouls. It was the first ejection of his career.
But while the ejection will get some of the headlines, this was Johnson's game. He went 11-for-19 from the field in the win.
Early on, it looked like Brooklyn would breeze by Oklahoma City. The Nets led by 23 points late in the second quarter, and at halftime they were ahead, 61-45.
The Thunder got back into the game by holding Brooklyn to just 15 points in the third quarter, but the Nets did enough down the stretch to win the game.
