Nigerian-born Bam Adebayo and Victor Oladipo were the stars of the last match as Miami Heat completed a 4-0 sweep of Indiana Pacers in the 2020 NBA Playoffs first round.
Bam Adebayo’s Miami Heat were too hot for Victor Oladipo’s Indiana Pacers on Monday as they secured a 99-87 win in game four to complete a 4-0 first round win.
Both Nigerian-born stars were the top performer for their franchise; Bam Adebayo who is in contention for the most improved player this season led Miami Heat with 14 points and 19 rebounds.
Bam added 6 assists, 1 steal and 1 block and two monster dunks to help his side advance into the semifinal where they would likely face Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Milwaukee Bucks.
While Victor Oladipo dropped 25 points, 5 assists, 8 rebounds and 5 steal on the night his side bowed out.
Both players had their takes on the series with Bam focusing on the next opponents.
“One hundred percent I think we can get to another gear,” Adebayo said.
“And that’s everybody here. This next series might be different.
“We might need to have different schemes.
“The playoffs are unpredictable and you never know how they can go.
“The thing I took from this is you have to leave it all on the floor.”
While Victor Oladipo on the hand gave credit to the Heat taking care of business.
“They played four great games and won in four different ways,” Oladipo said
