Bam slammed in the finish with about two minutes remaining in the first half of the Heat's 115-98 triumph on Friday at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix. He also poured in a career-best 22 points and had 10 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in the Heat victory.
The play began with Heat guard Goran Dragic dribbling above the 3-point line. Dragic bounced a pass over to Josh Richardson on the left flank before getting the ball back. Dragic drove toward the rim as Adebayo spun away from defenders and eyed his teammate.
Dragic then tossed up a pass with his left hand, leading the Heat big man toward the rim. Adebayo jogged into the paint and soared above three defenders to snatch the feed. He finished the monster dunk by bringing forward his right hand while flying over the Suns' Richaun Holmes.
"I provide energy no matter if [Hassan Whiteside] is in or he's out," Adebayo told reporters. "I feel like my teammates want me to bring it so that's what I did."
Adebayo is averaging 8.1 points and 7.0 rebounds per game this season. The Heat face the Los Angeles Clippers at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
