Heat G Goran Dragic: Back spams have slown me down lately


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) 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.


G Goran Dragic's game-high 22 points off the bench lifts Heat


(3/25/2015) Guard Goran Dragic contributed 22 points, seven assists and five rebounds in the Heat's 93-86 win in Boston on Wednesday.

Heat guard Goran Dragic says he feels 'slow'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) While Heat guard Goran Dragic has been able to play in the last six games, he admitted after Sunday's contest that he's been feeling 'slow' for weeks, reports the Palm Beach Post.

Dragic has been dealing with a back issue and he only scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Thunder.


Luol Deng becoming three-point threat again for Heat


(3/19/2015) Heat forward Luol Deng has reemerged as a three-point weapon this season, shooting 38 percent from long distance, his best since 2009-10, reports the Sun Sentinel.

"I'm going with the system, to be honest," Deng said. "It's just how we play here. When we move the ball, we've got to fill in spots. If you're a long-range shooter, it kind of opens the floor."

With Dwyane Wade and recently acquired Goran Dragic drawing defenders, Deng has been open for more three-point opportunities.

Overall, Deng is averaging 14.4 points and 5.0 rebounds per game.


Suns G Archie Goodwin credits D-League for expanded role


(3/18/2015) Struggling to find playing time for most of his first two seasons in the NBA, guard Archie Goodwin may have found a role with the Suns as a steady backup and he credits his experience in the D-League for the increased time, according to the ValleyoftheSuns.com.

“The things they were doing like sending me to the D-League and consistently having me play down there made me ready,” Goodwin said. “They did a good job of keeping me in game shape and getting me ready to play.”

Playing time opened up for Goodwin after the Suns traded off guards Goran Dragic, Isaiah Thomas and Tyler Ennis.

Goodwin has played 37 percent of his overall minutes this season in just his past four games, which has seen him average just under 9.0 points per game.

Goodwin recently became the first Suns player age 20 or younger since Amar’e Stoudemire to score 10 points or more in at least three consecutive games.
