Video: Heat’s Bam Adebayo shows his guard skills with handles and fake
The 6’8″ slotman showcased some rarely seen handles at the midway part of the third period, as he created his own shot and sliced through the teeth of the defense of the defending champions.
Blanketed by good defender OG Anunoby at the top of the key, Adebayo refused to give the ball up and wisely used the screen set up buy Duncan Robinson to free himself up. Bam then faked the pass as he made his move to hole and finished it off with a nifty right-handed lay-up to give the Heat a 54-50 advantage.
Bam making plays like this… 😳
