Dragic totaled 20 points (9-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four steals, three assists and one rebound in 37 minutes during Saturday's 106-102 loss to Philadelphia. Dragic did all he could for the Heat but they ran out of steam in the final quarter to eventually go down 3-1 in the series. Dragic has been solid throughout but the youth of the 76ers has proven too much for the veterans of the Heat. They will need to find something extra if they hope to go into Philadelphia and come away with the victory.
Dragic produced 23 points (8-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), eight assists, two rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes in Thursday's 128-108 loss to the 76ers. Dragic posted his second-straight 20-plus point effort in the series, however this one wasn't enough to help his team come out on top. It's good to see Dragic's shooting percentage increase in the last two contests, but while his close-range game has improved, his three-point shot has fallen off, as he has just two makes from deep after making three in Game 1 alone.
Dragic totaled 15 points (4-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes in Miami's 130-103 loss to the Sixers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference first-round playoff series. Dragic's final line was respectable, but it belied the struggles he endured from the field throughout the night. The veteran point guard will need to turn in a vastly better shooting performance moving forward for the Heat to have any chance of making it past the opening round against the red-hot Sixers, as he remains one of the most consistent sources of offense on the entire roster. He'll look to bounce back in Game 2 on Monday night.
Dragic (knee) is not on the injury report in advance of Saturday's Game 1 against the 76ers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. The Heat held Dragic out of Wednesday's regular season finale, but his absence was always thought to be precautionary. The veteran was able to practice Friday, and all signs point to him starting and playing his usual role in Saturday's Game 1.
Dragic (knee) is expected to take part in Friday's practice, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports. Dragic missed Wednesday's regular-season finale with a bruised knee, but it appears he should be back on the court ahead of Friday's practice. As long as everything checks out during that session, Dragic should be good to go for Saturday's playoff opener against the 76ers, though it's still a situation to monitor over the coming few days. As of now, Dragic seems likely to be ready for the start of the postseason.
