The Miami Heat defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 120-111 Saturday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Goran Dragić led the way for Miami with 28 points.

The Slovenian led Miami with 10 points on 3-of-4 shooting in the fourth.

Dragić also dished out five assists, grabbed three boards and recorded a plus-seven rating.

Although Hassan Whiteside didn’t score all that much, he protected the rim very well, disrupted Portland’s rhythm and came away with a game-high six blocks on the night.


In addition to his six blocks, Whiteside also had five points and a game-high 16 rebounds.

James Johnson (Sports Hernia Surgery), Dion Waiters (Left Ankle Surgery), Duncan Robinson (Sioux Falls Assignment) and Yante Maten (Sioux Falls Assignment) were inactive.

The Heat will finish their homestand Monday night at 7:30 against the Sacramento Kings.
