The Dragon went off for a whopping 20 points alone in the 10-minute second period to help Slovenia build a nine-point lead at intermission.

Dragic, who is the only active NBA player on Slovenia’s roster, finished with an impressive 12-of-22 from the field to go along with seven rebounds and three assists.

Heat teammates James Johnson and Justise Winslow both immediately took to social media after the game was over to congratulate Dragic for his heroic performance.
