Video: Bam Adebayo’s chasedown block seals comeback win for Heat
The Miami Heat stunned Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks as they came away with a 131-126 road victory after trailing by as much as 20 points. And this chase-down block by Bam Adebayo on Eric Bledsoe helped seal the win.

The Bucks were trailing 129-126 when Bledsoe grabbed a board and ran in transition. He thought he was going to get an easy layup, but Adebayo had a different plan in mind.
The Heat won their second consecutive game without All-Star forward Jimmy Butler, who’s still celebrating the birth of his child. Seven players from Miami scored in double figures, with Adebayo finishing with 19 points and 13 rebounds.
What’s more impressive? Last season, the Heat were 0-16 in games where they trailed by 20 or more points, while the Bucks were 33-1 when they led by 20.
The Heat are the first team this season to win a game they trailed by at least 20 points.
Miami was 0-16 after trailing by 20+ last season.
Milwaukee was 33-1 after leading by 20+ last season.
