Bam Adebayo scored just 13 points (5-of-11 FG) in the Heat's Game 5 loss on Friday, adding in eight rebounds and eight assists.
The Heat just didn't get enough scoring from their primary producers on Friday evening and Tyler Herro did not have nearly the game that he had in Game 4. The Heat had a significant lead after one quarter and were up at halftime but the Celtics poured it on in the second half, led by third-year forward Jayson Tatum. Adebayo, for his part, played 38 minutes and shot the ball just 11 times. That simply is not a good recipe for success and indicates the Heat had trouble getting the ball inside, as Adebayo has a primitive jump shot. The Heat will look to rebound and capitalize on their next opportunity to close out the Celtics.
