VIDEO: The Goran Dragic Show Carries Suns To Brink Of Sweep Of Spurs

Some things are so inexplicable...well, they defy any attempt at rational explanation (obviously). Game 3 between the Suns and the Spurs was one of those times. Specifically, the fourth quarter. Indeed, who would have guessed that in a pivotal game that all but decided the series, Phoenix would vanquish San Antonio thanks to the herculean efforts of...Goran Dragic? And that Steve Nash, Amar'e Stoudemire and Jason Richardson wouldn't leave the bench (at least until the outcome was already decided)? Weird, wild stuff.

Even SB Nation's Bright Side of the Sun -- long time proponents of the second-year Slovenian -- was more or less slack-jawed after Dragic's virtuoso fourth quarter:

I am not sure there's anything left to be said about Goran Dragic -- but I'll try.

His performance in San Antonio to single-handedly destroy the Spurs in Game 3 will go down as one of the great playoff performances in Phoenix Suns history. He was incredible. Beyond words. [...]

And then Goran Dragic and Leandro Barbosa happened. These guys, who were complete non-factors in the first two contests, finally got it going and took advantage of a Spurs defense that couldn't keep Roddy Beaubois out of the lane. I have no idea why Popovich thought his bigs could handle switching on to the Suns guards as if they were the Atlanta Hawks' Josh Smith and Al Horford, but the Suns took advantage. He backed off that tactic, but not before the Slovenian flame had been lit.

But really, words can't do justice to the mind-boggling display Dragic put on. Just watch it. At least once.
