Goran Dragic has reached his boiling point with officials

TORONTO -- Goran Dragic spent halftime Thursday having the gash in his bottom lip stitched up by the Heat's medical staff.

DeMar DeRozan's left elbow to his mouth wasn't what Dragic asked for on the eve of his 30th birthday. 

But nothing bothered the Heat's starting point guard more that when he was also called for the foul.

"Of course it was a charge -- I bled," Dragic told reporters after the Heat's 96-92 overtime Game 2 loss to the Raptors.

"If he hits me with the elbow first, then it's a charge. What can I say? This season, every time [I get hit] I get [called for] a foul. I lost two [teeth], got stitches and always they call it on me. I don't know if the refs are there watching the game or not."

Did Dragic get an explanation?

"No," he said. "I didn't even want to -- talk because it's only going to get worse."
