The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that Erik Spoelstra is in Slovenia visiting with Goran Dragic, and while he is there he is telling Dragic that he needs to play at his preferred fast tempo.
“It only makes sense for us to maximize Goran’s strengths, and Hassan’s strengths, Justise Winslow’s strengths,” Spoelstra said. “Their strengths are their speed, their athleticism. Goran is one of the best fast-break, transition point guards in this game. He will force tempo regardless of how you want to play or how you want to defend. Goran is going to run.” This is great news and we had already been building a big pace increase into our projections for the Heat, which will be available when we release the premium version of the Bruski 150 in a few weeks.
