Goran Dragic insists nothing has changed on his end since the All-Star break. The Suns point guard said he has the same preparation before every game, whether it was in November or March.

It’s just everything else has changed around him.

“We changed so many things this season — coaching staff, actions and this kind of stuff, starting lineup, every second week it’s a different starting five — it’s really tough to be consistent,” Dragic said.

Yes that’s exactly what Dragic has done. The first-year starter leads the NBA in double-digit-assist games since the All-Star break, recording his 10th such effort Friday against Minnesota.

Dragic’s done it despite a shapeshifting starting lineup. In those 10 double-digit assists games, the Suns have used five different starting fives.

“It’s really impressive,” interim coach Lindsey Hunter said. “He’s really stepped his game up. I would like to take some credit for that, but I can’t.”

The most consistent the lineup of the Hunter era was immediately after the All-Star break, when Dragic recorded five of his double-digit-assist games in six games with a lineup of Luis Scola, Marcin Gortat, P.J. Tucker and Jared Dudley.

Dragic said he did find a better rhythm with Gortat after the break, but the Suns haven’t been able to use that lineup since Gortat was injured against the Toronto Raptors on March 6.

Since then, Wesley Johnson and Markieff Morris have been the only lineup mainstays, with Scola, Tucker, Jermaine O’Neal and Marcus Morris fluttering in and out.

“It’s really tough,” Dragic said. “Different guys, different characters, different mind-sets. Every team is different. You just try to make the best possible play you can make on the floor and hopefully they can make shots.”

Dragic’s best explanation is that it’s not anything he’s doing. His teammates are just making shots.

Yet, the Suns shot 43.8 percent in those 10 games, just a shade under their 44 percent mark for the season, which is eighth-worst in the NBA.

“I think he is more alert about, when he penetrates, where to find his guys,” Hunter said. “I think when he does that, he creates a tough situation to guard, because he can get to the rim or he’s finding guys.”
