Miami Heat players that should be taking game-winning shots: #4 – Kyle Lowry

People don’t usually think of Kyle Lowry as a shot creator. That’s mostly because he’s at his best when he is setting up others for easy baskets.

That being said, Lowry is fully capable of creating his own shots. He is a great three-point shooter, elite ball-handler, and would be able to get a shot off if he needed to.

Having such a versatile offensive player is going to be great for the Miami Heat this season. He should help them get easier shots on offense, which in turn should get them easier shots in the clutch.

There are definitely better options to go to at the end of games, but Lowry can do the job well. Putting the ball in Lowry’s hands is a solid option for Miami.

Miami Heat players that should be taking game-winning shots: #3 – Bam Adebayo

Miami Heat fans got a little taste of Bam Adebayo’s clutch gene last season. He hit a game-winner vs the Brooklyn Nets in April of this year.

Adebayo is at his best when he is defending the paint, catching lobs, and getting easy buckets. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t create for himself, too.

Despite being a center, Adebayo is a super crafty ball-handler. He can get to his spot, create a shot for himself, and drain it over any opponent, just as he displayed with his shot vs Brooklyn.

Similar to Herro, there are probably better options than Adebayo to be taking game-winning shots. That being said, putting the ball in Adebayo’s hands would be just fine.
