The Miami Heat are having a pretty woeful time this season. There is nothing to get excited about in Sunshine State and the 'big three' era is a distant memory.

LeBron James is chasing titles with his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, Dwyane Wade has gone to Chicago while the Heat and Chris Bosh are counting the days until the termination of his contract. 

Sitting on 5-12, it appears the three-time champions are about to embark on a full rebuild, so 2016/17 is going to be a painfully long campaign for their followers. 

However, there was a special piece of history during their game with the Boston Celtics as Goran Dragic - making his return from a two-game injury lay off - became the first player since the 'big three' era to record a 15 point, 15 assist double-double. 

Of course, LeBron was the last player to do that for the Heat. 

Dragic ended the night with 27 points and 17 dimes but, you guessed it, Miami fell to defeat to their conference rivals. 

The former Phoenix guard is one of few positives for the Florida-based organisation, and more performances of this ilk will only further endear him to the fans. 

Supporters of the organisation can see where their future lies and having a point guard of Dragic's quality, who can run the floor and score in volume, can only be positive when they look for a big-name free agent in the summer to accompany a lottery pick.
