Heat’s Goran Dragic makes up for his failed dunk with two-handed slam

You have to imagine that after what happened just less than a week ago, Goran Dragic was going to do everything in his power to throw this one down against the Orlando Magic:

According to Basketball-Reference, that’s the first dunk for Dragic since Dec. 30, 2014. He might have had one sooner, if it weren’t for a dunk attempt that went wrong against the Cleveland Cavaliers last Saturday:


As Dragic indicated with the hash tag, he blamed a shoe failure for his decision to lay the ball up at the last second in that Cavs game. 

Now, Dragic doesn’t dunk very often, but for whatever reason, he seems to have a tendency to slam it home with two hands. See his dunk against Team USA while playing for the Slovenian national team:

And this impressive dunk from Dragic’s time with the Phoenix Suns follows the same pattern:

On second look, it seems that Dragic was attempting a two-handed jam against the Cavs, too, before things went sideways.
