The result could have been much worse for Ibaka. Johnson is a second-degree black belt who told The Palm Beach Post he has been involved in martial arts since he was 7 or 8. His parents and all eight of his siblings are also black belts, according to the Post.

As of Oct. 6, 2016, Johnson — who’s listed at 6-8 and 250 pounds — had fought in seven MMA and 20 kickboxing matches, according to the Post. He won them all.

Ibaka finished the game with 11 points and five rebounds, while Johnson tallied two field goals.

The Heat won 90-89. Wayne Ellington's layup with three-tenths of a second remaining was the deciding basket.
