If that Morris twin foul on Dragic was a flagrant 2, then this foul from Nene has to be right in the same family

Jason Lieser

Phoenix's Markieff Morris also was fined $15k for his Flagrant II against Goran Dragic.

Surya Fernandez

Whiteside fined $15k, Len fined $20k for their altercation. Morris fined $15k for flagrant foul on Dragic. No suspensions.

Paul Coro

The NBA fined Markieff Morris $15K for his flagrant foul 2, which was for contact above the shoulders on a Goran Dragic breakaway layup.

Jason Lieser

My early impression of Goran Dragic is that it's pretty much always a good day to be Goran Dragic.

Jason Lieser

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.

Jason Lieser

Another thinker from Spoelstra on what's realistic to expect in Wade-Dragic chemistry: "What’s realistic is whatever’s necessary."

Jason Lieser

Dragic spoke w/ Hornacek & former teammates yesterday. Did he talk to Ryan McDonough? Just laughed. Doesn't think that'll be happening soon.

Shandel Richardson

Goran Dragic said he is still dealing with right shoulder pain. Not from the fall but a previous collision vs. Suns

Jason Lieser

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."

Jason Lieser

Goran Dragic says his back "is ok" but his R shoulder is sore now from a collision last night.

Paul Coro

The #Suns reminded Jeff Hornacek of a high school team. Goran Dragic said beating them was "definitely more special." bit.ly/1BBcC4P

Ethan J. Skolnick

Correction on earlier tweet: Hornacek said that Dragic always throws his "right" elbow out. Which makes more sense, considering he's lefty.
