Dragic, Phoenix beat depleted Warriors 122-109
Question of the Day
PHOENIX (AP) - Goran Dragic had a special person he wanted to impress.
Son Mateo - age three months and three days - attended his first NBA game.
“I was a little bit hyped,” Dragic said. “I tried to show him what his daddy can do.”
As has been the case often in this breakout season, Dragic did a lot, especially when it mattered most.
Dragic, who also had 10 assists, topped 30 points for the sixth time this season as the Suns (30-20) pulled a half-game ahead of the Warriors (30-21) for the sixth-best record in the Western Conference.
“These guys were sharp,” he said. “The one thing I told them, especially that fourth quarter, they played smart.”
“We are a no-excuse team,” Golden State coach Mark Jackson said. “Obviously we’re missing those guys but we still have more than enough to win ball games. Give the credit they played extremely well. They are a very good offensive team.”
Dragic, left out of the All-Star game, made 10 of 13 shots. He tied his career best for 3-pointers made with six, in seven attempts. His torrid finish came after he experienced a dizzy spell. After a couple of sports drinks, he felt better.
“I was kind of cruising the third quarter,” Dragic said. “I just hit one 3 and I was not aggressive enough, and then the fourth quarter I just started playing. I just started feeling good.”
