Let's call it how it is, Goran Dragic is killing it so far in the preseason. Remember that time Steve Kerr said he was the second-best point guard in the 2008 draft behind only Derrick Rose? Looking pretty, pretty, pretty, good.
Here's some postgame links from the Suns preseason win over the Dirk-less Mavs. People, please try and keep a good handle on your dirks. You don't want to get caught out dirkless.

Suns Vs. Mavericks: Phoenix improves to 2-1 on the preseason - SB Nation Arizona
The Phoenix Suns beat the Dallas Mavericks 100-94 thanks to strong performances from Jared Dudley, Goran Dragic, Wes Johnson and Marcin Gortat.
