Goran Dragić had a quick start in the game and led the way for the Heat with 22 points. He also contributed with 8-of-15 shooting and dished out six assists. Dragić says if they let their opponents have their way offensively, they will not be able to win games. Josh Richardson had 17 points, while Hassan Whiteside had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Heat. Whiteside became the first Heat player to record 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in a season. Whiteside says that when guys start to play selfish basketball, that is what hurts the team the most.
