Goran Dragic says his teammate in the Miami Heat Jimmy Butler motivates the team to get better game after game.

“They push you here. Jimmy is the same. If you’re not used to it, it can [be] like, ‘I don’t like him.’ But, this is the perfect situation for us and Jimmy. He just wants you and the team to get better,” Dragic said, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Butler has been great on both ends, averaging 21.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists this season. The Heat are fourth in the East, with a 35-19 record.
