The MVP of the night | Bam Adebayo imposes

It was Jimmy Butler who scored the important baskets to allow the Heat to dominate the “money-time” against the Clippers but, upstream, it was Bam Adebayo who had carried the Miami team.

With its mix of mobility, vista and power, the Florida interior hurt Ivica Zubac or Nicolas Batum very badly, who failed to get him away from the circle. He thus ends the meeting with 31 points at 14/21, accompanied by 10 rebounds (including 4 offensive) as well as 4 assists. And a +/- of +13.

After the disappointment following back-to-back losses to Memphis and Detroit, Bam Adebayo is well aware that the Heat must now move up a gear, to move up the standings as the defending conference finalists only point to the 10th place in the Eastern Conference with 12 wins for 14 losses.

For the interior, it will go through his offensive aggressiveness.

“The most important thing for me is to keep shooting” he explains. “I go to my spots. I feel like that’s most important to us. When I manage to go to my spots (favorite areas), everything is fine. I feel good. And all my teammates are comfortable when I shoot like that. It’s not just about shooting. It’s a question of assertiveness, of opportunities. » And to impose his will on the adversary.
