The message all season from the Miami Heat veterans to the youngsters on the roster has been pointed and consistent.
Every step taken, every triumph and stumble, all that transpired from the start of training camp to the season shutdown in early March to the restart of the regular season last month, it was all preparation for a moment like the one presented to the Heat on Monday.
So it should come as no surprise that Bam Adebayo, Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro and Kendrick Nunn all had their moments helping deliver the Heat’s first-round sweep of the Indiana Pacers.
Adebayo played huge all four games, even when his raw numbers didn’t jump off the stat sheet. Particularly on nights like this one, where his 14 points, season-high-tying 19 rebounds and six assists loomed extra large with fellow Heat All-Star Jimmy Butler limited by a sore left shoulder.
Robinson triggered the franchise playoff-record three-point barrage in Game 2, going 7-for-8 from deep to tie Mike Miller’s franchise record on his way to a playoff career-high 24 points.
