DeRozan: I didn't have a problem with Dragic until he gave me a look

DeMar DeRozan didn't have a problem with Goran Dragic before, but he may now.

Following the Miami Heat's chippy 90-89 win Tuesday over the Toronto Raptors, the two exchanged words and got handsy before DeRozan took a swipe at Dragic and they were pulled apart.

Asked about the altercation afterward, DeRozan suggested Dragic started it.

"He must have thought I was trying to hit him or something after I shot the (final) shot, but I don't know," the three-time All-Star told reporters. "I didn't have no problem with it at first until he looked at me, so who knows? That's a question you probably gotta ask him."

The reporters obliged, asking Dragic, who shrugged off the incident.

"Ah, nothing special. We just exchanged some words. No big deal," the point guard replied, according to Fox Sports Heat's Will Manso.

DeRozan finished with a game-high 25 points to go along with six assists and four rebounds, in the first game his co-star Kyle Lowry missed with a bruised tailbone and back spasms. Serge Ibaka was ejected in the third quarter for fighting James Johnson.
