Goran Dragić has 21 points in Slovenia's first World Cup game; "still not completely satisfied" with his game

Slovenia takes the win in their first World Cup game behind the fire breathing Dragon. Final score 90:80. First game of the World Cup proved to be a real thrill for Slovenian fans.

He figured out a way to NOT punch Richie, and even though it didn't make much sense, he still...
