Goran Dragic finished Saturday night with 18 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in Saturday’s 99-92 loss to the Blazers.
Dragic has been a man on a mission since returning from his elbow injury. Over his last four games, Dragic has averaged 22 points and 9.5 assists per game, well above his season averages. Last year was a down year for Dragic, but with Dwayne Wade out of the picture, the Heat have had to rely heavily on the 30-year-old point guard, and the moderate uptick in numbers has reflected in the usage patterns. Top-50 value may no longer be in the cards for the veteran point guard, but a few more games likes this could get him back in the top-75 conversation.
