Miami Heat: Should Bam Adebayo Get Back To A Bit More Playmaking?
Bam and Tyler worked off of the dribble hand-off (DHOs) as well, finding a nice two-man game around the perimeter. The chemistry was clear.
They worked off of each other, seamlessly at times, against the best defense in the league to find some success. Of course, Bam didn’t just assist Herro.
Similar action was found with Kyle Lowry and Max Strus in the fourth quarter. Basically, the Miami Heat found success by running action with Bam, either, along the perimeter or even in the pinch post.
They used him in dribble hand-offs with their shooters, while simultaneously setting screens to give said shooters space. They used him as the compass of their offense, once the direction was clear, he executed.
This provokes an interesting thought though. Why isn’t Bam getting more assists this season and across his career?
Though he has been known to be one of the most skilled and best passing bigs around the entire NBA throughout his career, the numbers just aren’t there across that entire span or this season. Just why is that?
