The Miami Heat defeated the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night 137-106 to improve to 34-15, while the 76ers drop to 31-20. Heat forward Bam Adebayo, who spoke with reporters after the game, finished with 18 points, 11 assists, and eight rebounds.
“That was the best form of us tonight,” Adebayo began, “We only had three turnovers. We had 14 steals. That just shows we were affecting the game defensively and offensively.”
During the interview, you could hear Heat point guard Goran Dragic teasing Adebayo about getting more rebounds to complete the triple-double.
“Hey Bam, get the rebounds. You’ll get a triple-double,” says Dragic.
“Stop stealing my rebounds. How many rebounds did you have tonight?” Adebayo replied.
“Two,” says Dragic.
“Exactly. Those two could’ve helped me get my triple-double,” Adebayo said.
Locker room banter during post-game interviews has been consistent between the Heat players all season long. One could say that it’s playing a huge factor in building the chemistry that has gotten them off to a great start in the first half of the season.
