Adebayo then gathered the ball and was fouled to be sent to the free-throw line. He went on to score the final point of the game to give Miami the win, 117-114.
The contest was a Game 1 classic with huge plays made by both teams. The Heat’s starters played incredibly well.
Adebayo finished with 18 points, six rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and a steal.
Jimmy Butler finished the game with 20 points, five rounds, five assists and two steals.
Jae Crowder finished with 22 points and shot 5-for-9 from beyond the arc.
Point guard Goran Dragic was the team’s top point-getter with 29 points in the contest.
With one win under their belt, the Heat are now three wins away from a berth in the NBA Finals.
If Adebayo can keep playing at this level, those three wins may come rather quickly.
