Bam Adebayo stepping up big for Heat vs. Knicks – NBA Blog – NBA Basketball Blog


Via the Miami Herald:

Miami Heat All-Star center Bam Adebayo has a lot of responsibilities on the court. But he’s also willing to accept responsibility for his play, for better or worse.

Both have been on display in the eighth-seeded Heat’s second-round playoff series against the fifth-seeded New York Knicks.

After Adebayo blamed himself for the Heat’s Game 2 loss last week in New York that left the best-of-7 series tied 1-1, he responded with consecutive dominant all-around performances on both ends of the court in Games 3 and 4 in Miami to help push the Heat to a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Following Monday night’s 109-101 victory at Kaseya Center in Game 4, the Heat is now just one win from advancing to the Eastern Conference finals for the third time in four seasons and becoming just the second No. 8 seed to make it to the conference finals since the current 16-team NBA playoff format was instituted for the 1983-84 season.
