Dragic accumulated 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-1 FG), nine rebounds, five assists, and three steals in the Heat's 95-78 win over New York on Monday. Dragic had possibly his best game of the year on Monday night. He's been Miami's starting point guard in every one of their games this season, and overall has been solid on a nightly basis. Dragic is currently averaging 10.7 points and 4.6 assists per game.
Dragic provided 16 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT), nine assists, two rebounds, and one steal over 36 minutes before fouling out in Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves. The 29-year-old Dragic is a relative spring chicken on the aging Heat roster, but he's inexplicably looked slow out of the gate to start the season. He's failed to reach double-digit scoring in four of his 10 games this season and is averaging a meager 11.1 points, 4.5 assists, and 2.9 rebounds on 42.3 percent shooting, figures that are all down from last year's marks. It's too early to throw in the towel on a Dragic bounce back, but he'll soon need to provide evidence that he can be a regular mid-teens scorer for the Heat in order for fantasy owners to feel confident about his rest-of-season outlook.
Dragic scored 19 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), while dishing out five assists with three steals in Tuesday's 98-92 loss to the Hawks. Dragic only had two assists to four turnovers Tuesday, which is his worst ratio of the season. Dwyane Wade left the game early with migraines, but shouldn't miss any time, so expect Dragic to continue to provide secondary scoring for Miami.
Dragic recorded eight points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, six assists, and one steal in 24 minutes during the Heat's 109-89 win versus the Rockets on Sunday. Through three games, Dragic is averaging 9.0 points (41.7 FG, 25.0 3Pt, 100.0 FT), 2.3 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.7 blocks, and 1.0 turnover in 30 minutes per game. Back-court mate Dwyane Wade has been filling it up thus far, but Dragic has been quiet to begin the season. On the positive side, his 6:1 assist-to-turnover ratio is stellar, and it's likely he'll start taking and making more shots as the season progresses.
Heat guard Goran Dragic has recovered from his flu-like symptoms, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports. Dragic missed the preseason finale against the Wizards due to a sickness but currently feels healthy and will likely play against Charlotte on Wednesday, in what will begin his first full year in Miami. He will continue to start over Mario Chalmers as Dragic started in all 26 of his appearances last year for the Heat.
