Bam Adebayo picked up 38 minutes on Friday night and made the most of them with 14 points, eight rebounds, five assists and a steal.
The assists raise some eyebrows here, and it’s good to see he’s got that kind of vision in his arsenal even if this will almost surely go down as his season-high. Adebayo has been a top-100 player over the past month and seems to be showing some nice growth in the absence of Hassan Whiteside. He’ll head back to the bench when Whiteside comes back but Heat coaches have publicly speculated about the possibility of playing the two centers together. Adebayo is still more of a short-term play but he’s done well to boost his overall stock.
