Spoelstra: Bam Adebayo is the heart and soul of our group

The Kentucky product ended the regular season with over 19 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists per game

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra praises Bam Adebayo after his excellent performance in Game 3 win over Boston Celtics:

“I’ve seen him play great basketball in the playoffs. I really have. He’s a winning player. And you know, he really is the heart and soul of our group. You can count on him all the time. He doesn’t get caught up in all the noise and everything. He’s just out there competing. Playing winning basketball. Doing it on both ends and doing what is necessary. Tonight we needed the scoring and we needed kind of that offensive punch early on.

And again, it was like just on the catch, he was a lot more assertive. Then when Jimmy was out in the second half, he just stabilized us. It got a little gnarly out there and when it did, we were able to get the ball to Bam and just get something coherent”.
