Coming off three straight losses that took them from first in the Eastern Conference to peak frustration in less than a week, it probably wasn’t ideal to have Goran Dragic, Miami’s latest $85 million investment, turning down open layups, turning down open 3-pointers, turning the ball over and turning makeable shots into hopeless clankers.

Before the Heat’s recent two-game road trip — the team left the offense behind in Miami — Dragic had a three-game stretch in which he averaged 17 points on 59 percent shooting with eight assists. But Sunday, back in the comforts of home, Dragic’s confidence was clearly shot. And his teammates were once again offering their style of encouragement.
