The Miami Heat are coming off a weekend split, dropping a Saturday night affair to the Minnesota Timberwolves, just a night after knocking off the Cleveland Cavaliers. Finding themselves in advantageous situations during both, they were not able to be consistently good across the whole of the Minnesota game, as they were against Cleveland.
While that is the case with the team, as a whole, there was a guy that was not only consistently aggressive in both contests but has been more than he hasn’t for quite some time now. Since a terrible blowout to the Boston Celtics back in January, Bam Adebayo has been a man on a mission.
Without Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry in the lineup for that one, Bam would finish the contest tied for the third-most field goal attempts at 11, the same amount as Caleb Martin. With Martin’s improvement, that isn’t a knock, as much as to say that Bam Adebayo should always be near the top of the list for shots taken, especially without Lowry and Butler in the lineup.
After that game, Bam Adebayo has proceeded to take his game to a new level. He has been the most aggressive that he’s ever been during his tenure in the league.
