Bam Adebayo After Miami Heat’s Insane Comeback Win: ‘We Got Shooters’'
1 Min Read

Bam Adebayo hasn’t forgotten the dig Hassan Whiteside took at his former team when he was traded this past offseason.

After the Miami Heat defeated the Atlanta Hawks 135-121 on Tuesday night, Adebayo echoed Whiteside’s comment in the team’s locker room .

Duncan Robinson was the Heat’s most prolific shooter of the game. He knocked down a franchise-tying record of 10 threes en route to a 34-point outing.

The Heat have an abundance of shooters, but it was Robinson who found the mark against the Hawks. Adebayo was clearly quite pleased with the 6-foot-7 forward’s performance.

After Whiteside was shipped by the Heat to the Portland Trail Blazers during the offseason, the 7-foot big man went on social media to express his delight over his new team’s shooting ability. His statement didn’t seem to sit well with his former team.

A few Heat players have taken apparent shots at Whiteside since, and Adebayo is just the latest to do so.

For his part, Miami’s starting center was also a big reason the Heat won on Tuesday. He registered a triple-double with 30 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.
