Dragic bounces back in 2nd game

via <a href=""></a>

Just like in his Vegas Summer League performance, Goran Dragic  followed a poor first game with a solid second. The Slovenia "Green Wave" rolled over a Serbian team 80-69. The Serbs were fresh off a win over group favorite Spain.

Goran, apparently playing most of his minutes off the ball, recorded 16 points on 5/5 shooting inside the arc and 1/4 beyond. He also grabbed 4 rebounds and had 2 steals, 2 turnovers and no assists in 26 minutes of play.

According to this report he was part of a turning point:

That would be as close as they would get though as Nachbar and substitute Samo Udrih scored the next four points for a 22-15 advantage heading into the second quarter.

Goran Dragic took over at that point, scoring eight of his 10 first-half points to help Slovenia go up 31-17 with just under six minutes left before the break.

The back-up guard hit a long three-pointer and then knocked the ball out of Milan Macvan's hands near midcourt, before going in for an uncontested lay-up. He later used his quickness to knife his way into the defense for another deuce.

If the pattern holds true, Goran will have another good game against Spain tomorrow.
