Goran Dragic had one of the best games this season for the Miami Heat as he had 25 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists in a win over the Chicago Bulls. The Slovenian guard was in a good form while still recovering from an ankle injury that forced him to miss 9 games in February.

Jimmy Butler, his teammate, talked about Dragic’s performance versus the Bulls, saying a dunk will be a sign that will show that the 34-year-old veteran has fully recovered.

“I just wish he would dunk the ball one time,” Butler said per Anthony Chiang. “I’m waiting on that to happen. That’s when I know the Dragon is back, when he gets a dunk.”

This season, Dragic is averaging 15 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game for last year’s NBA Finalists.
