Over 5 years of career in half a season’ Adebayo, the key to Miami’s offense

The Miami Heat won 98-95 in a game against the Boston Celtics in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season held at the Miami-Dade Arena in Miami on the 25th (hereinafter Korean time).

On this day, Miami defeated Boston, the league leader, without Jimmy Butler, who was absent due to back pain. The biggest reason why I was able to laugh in the muddy game was the performance of Adebayo, the snake who emerged as the core of the team’s offense this season.  스포츠토토

Adebayo completed a double-double with 30 points and 15 rebounds to lead the team to victory. In particular, at the end of the 4th quarter, when the score was tied 95-95, with 20.4 seconds left in the game, he succeeded in a jumper that gave the team a lead, becoming the number one contributor to the team’s victory.

Adebayo, who debuted on the NBA stage in the 2017-2018 season and has already entered his 6th year as a pro, has a greater presence in the offense than ever before this season. He is having a career high season in scoring, averaging 21.6 points, 10.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists this season. 

In fact, even before he stepped into the professional stage, Adebayo was evaluated as having rich potential in defense rather than offense. However, from the 2019-2020 season, Adebayo, who started to slowly open his eyes to offense, such as playing as Miami’s main center and recording an average of more than 5 assists per game for two seasons, has increased his scoring power in earnest this season and is the league’s leading offensive player. He was reborn as a big man. 

In particular, the explosive power improved noticeably. Adebayo, who had only scored more than 30 points in a game until the 2021-2022 season, only 7 times in 5 seasons, stepped on the 30-point notice that day and scored 8 times or more this season alone. 

With this victory, Miami, which continued its upward trend of 6 wins and 2 losses in the last 8 games, jumped to 6th place in the East with a record of 27 wins and 22 losses in the season. If Adebayo plays the offensive role he does now, Miami could look even higher.
