Heat G Goran Dragic: Back spams have slown me down lately
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Despite his fast play on the court, Heat guard Goran Dragic admitted again on Thursday that he's feeling slow lately because of back spasms, per the Palm Beach Post.

"It's that time of the season," Dragic said. "Your body takes a pounding. We’re 70 games into the regular season. I'm having problems with my back. Sometimes after a game, the next day it's really sore. But that's normal."

Dragic was traded from Phoenix to Miami before the trade deadline. In his first 16 games with the Heat, he is averaging 17.0 points, 5.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game. He is shooting 52.8 percent from the field over that span.

Bob Cousy: Heat's Hassan Whiteside plays like Bill Russell
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Former NBA star Bob Cousy is a big believer in Heat center Hassan Whiteside

In an interview with The Telegram, Cousy compared Whiteside, who's averaging 11.0 points and 9.8 rebound per game, to legendary Celtics center Bill Russell

"I have never said this in the 40 years since I retired," Cousy said, "but he is the first big guy, not (Patrick) Ewing, (Hakeem) Olajuwon, Shaq (O'Neal), who reminds me defensively and on the boards of Russell. He runs the floor well, he has excellent timing, he blocks shots and keeps them in play the way Russell did." 

Whiteside earned more playing time in January and has been a pleasant surprise for the Heat. He's also averaging 2 1/2 blocks per game. 

"That's a great honor," Whiteside said, when told of the Russell comparison. "Everybody knows that Bill Russell is probably one of the best shot blockers that ever lived. That's really a big honor that he thinks of me that way."
