Simply put, Goran Dragic was the MVP of the Miami Heat's win over the Toronto Raptors in Game 6.

The Slovenian point guard had 30 points, seven rebounds and four assists in the Heat's 103-91 victory to push the series to a Game 7. Considering Dragic is averaging 17.2 points per game so far in this series, that's a pretty big step-up from his usual production.

Obviously, this was a do-or-die game for Miami, but what was the primary motivation for Dragic's statistical outburst?

He simply didn't want to go home.

Europe is a pretty far destination from South Florida. In fact, Slovenia is roughly 5,000 miles from the United States.

If the 30-year-old point guard doesn't want to go back to Europe any time soon, he'll have to try for another monster performance in Game 7 to give the Heat a chance to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.
