Three former Kentucky Wildcats had big games in a matchup against each other in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals last night.

The Miami Heat picked up the 119-103 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, and a pair of former Kentucky Wildcats led the way for the Heat to take a 2-0 series lead.

Bam Adebayo had a team-high 23 points and 9 rebounds, and the newly-crowned 6th Man of the Year Tyler Herro came away with 18 points on 6-10 shooting and 7 rebounds.

Philadelphia’s loss couldn’t be pinned on Tyrese Maxey though. Maxey played a team-high 43 minutes and scored a team-high 34 points on 12-22 shooting and went 9-11 from the free throw line.

It was a big night for the former Wildcats and surely John Calipari was happy to see it. If I’m Cal, I’m continuing to use this as recruiting material.
