Goran Dragic and the rest of the Miami Heat have their sights set on the playoffs and the first-round clash with the Indiana Pacers.

The Slovenian guard and his teammates want to have a deep run in the postseason and fight for the NBA championship.

That is why Dragic used ‘Hunger Games’ metaphor to show Miami’s championship aspirations.

“Jimmy stays in his room and Udonis [Haslem too]. We don’t hang out with other players. We’ve already prepared ourselves for the playoffs.

If you win, you stay. If you lose, you go home. So we’re not here to hang out or to play cards with them or to talk to them. No, this is business for us.

We want to win a championship and that’s how we’re going to do it. It’s normal for us. Even [Erik Spoelstra] is talking about it. For us, it’s hunger games. Hunger games — whoever wins, that team is going to eat basically,” Dragic said, via Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.
