Bam Adebayo denied Jayson Tatum of the Celtics at the basket at the end of overtime on Tuesday and finished with 18 points (5-of-12 FG) and nine assists.
Adebayo kept his methodical run of steady play going on Tuesday and came through with the game-saving block at the horn. Jimmy Butler referred to Bam as the "heart and soul" of the Heat in his postgame interview and it's hard to argue with the team's leading scorer in that regard. Adebayo was making plays all over the court, adding in six boards, two blocks and one steal in 42.5 minutes of play. The Heat will look to jump out to a 2-0 series lead on Thursday in Game 2.
