With the Heat leading by eight points in the final seconds of their Game 2 win in Philadelphia, point guard Goran Dragic dribbled all the way down the court for an uncontested layup with 1.2 seconds remaining instead of dribbling the clock out. Sixers players on the bench immediately had words for Dragic after the play, but he never looked back to acknowledge them. And after Wednesday’s practice, Dragic didn’t really acknowledge them either. “I don’t care,” Dragic said when asked about the Sixers’ reaction to the play. “The first game we were down 30 and they were still running [inbounds plays after timeouts] with seven seconds left in the game. It’s the playoffs. I’m doing everything it takes.”
But at least one Sixers player still seemed upset about it after their practice Wednesday in Miami. “It definitely matters because you can just dribble it out, everything,” Philadelphia forward Robert Covington said. “But you know, we don’t understand why he did it. But overall, we just said, OK, that gives us anticipation because obviously he didn’t care about the simple fact of the score of the game. They were already winning.”
