Goran Dragic Breaks 2 Miami Heat Records in 1st Half vs. Golden State Warriors

1 Min Read

Goran Dragic set two Miami Heat records in the first half against the Golden State Warriors, by coming off the bench to score 20 points in the second quarter, and 25 points in the first half.

No Heat reserve had ever done either of those things in the team’s history.

The former All-Star point guard scored his record-setting 25 points by shooting 6-of-9 from the field, including 4-of-6 from beyond the arc.

He also made all nine of his free-throw attempts. Behind his strong performance, the Heat took a 15-point halftime lead over the defending champions.

Dragic is playing in just his 17th game of the season, as he’s battled injuries for much of the year. It’s only the fourth time he’s come off the bench in the last seven seasons, but apparently it’s suiting him well.

Coming into the game, Dragic was averaging 14.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.5 assist per game, while shooting 40.8 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from deep.
