Goran Dragic thrived as a member of the starting unit, connecting on four triples on his way to 24 points, six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Tuesday's Game 1 victory.
Dragic replaced Kendrick Nunn in the starting lineup and turned in a vintage performance. He took over during the second half, scoring 21 of his 24 points during an impressive stretch. The Heat simply had too many weapons for the Pacers and that was without Duncan Robinson having any offensive rhythm at all. It makes sense for the Heat to leave Dragic with the starters, at least in the short-term, and so he should maintain a sizeable role moving forward.
