If that Morris twin foul on Dragic was a flagrant 2, then this foul from Nene has to be right in the same family
Phoenix's Markieff Morris also was fined $15k for his Flagrant II against Goran Dragic.
Whiteside fined $15k, Len fined $20k for their altercation. Morris fined $15k for flagrant foul on Dragic. No suspensions.
The NBA fined Markieff Morris $15K for his flagrant foul 2, which was for contact above the shoulders on a Goran Dragic breakaway layup.
My early impression of Goran Dragic is that it's pretty much always a good day to be Goran Dragic.
Dragic kept setting up Wade for 3s and kept getting mad that he didn't take them. Didn't realize that's not generally a Wade play.
Another thinker from Spoelstra on what's realistic to expect in Wade-Dragic chemistry: "What’s realistic is whatever’s necessary."
Dragic spoke w/ Hornacek & former teammates yesterday. Did he talk to Ryan McDonough? Just laughed. Doesn't think that'll be happening soon.
Goran Dragic said he is still dealing with right shoulder pain. Not from the fall but a previous collision vs. Suns
G Dragic on Whiteside's tackle: "I'm not a professional fighter, but it looked good. But let's put all these jokes to the side and move on."
Goran Dragic says his back "is ok" but his R shoulder is sore now from a collision last night.
Correction on earlier tweet: Hornacek said that Dragic always throws his "right" elbow out. Which makes more sense, considering he's lefty.
After Goran Dragic went to the ground tonight Wade ran over and said “Please stand up.”
Goran Dragic on the foul: "It was kind of painful. But at the same time, D-Wade came to me & said, 'Please stand up."
Goran Dragic on the altercations tonight: "It's a man's game."
Dragic (back spasms) says he would've sat out tonight if it was any other opponent.
Did Dragic & Markieff talk after Markieff knocked him down? Dragic: "I didn't talk to nobody."
Dragic: "It means a lot. You always want to play well against your old teammates."
Wade on Dragic: "He told us this is his birthday present. Look up when his birthday is. It ain't this month."
Markieff Morris says that the Dragic play was "overexagerated.... It was a hard foul."
