NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Miami Heat Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports

Big Blue Nation has known for a while now just how good former Kentucky Wildcat Bam Adebayo is and can be. After last fall’s NBA Playoffs showcased just how dominant the Miami Heat big man is at both ends of the floor, it’s now far less of a surprise when he completely takes over games like he did Sunday night against the Brooklyn Nets.

Bam put together a team-leading 21 points and 15 rebounds, was a +9 for the game and absolutely shut down a lethal Brooklyn Nets offense. Even Kyrie Irving, who has one of the best handles in NBA history, was 0-8 when guarded by Adebayo.

Not Dragic... Not Herro... Not Robinson... but Adebayo got the last shot on Sunday night and answered the bell, burying the star-studded Nets 109-107. It’s been an up and down year for the Heat, but Bam has them currently in position for a playoff spot.
