#NBATopShotThis: Bam Adebayo nails game-winning jumper at the buzzer
Losers of three in a row, the Miami Heat entered their meeting with the Brooklyn Nets in desperate need of a win.
Bam Adebayo delivered.
Down 107-101 with 3:31 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Heat rang off a 6-0 run over the next 2:30 to tie things up with under 45 seconds remaining. After getting a much-needed stop, Miami put the ball in Adebayo's hands and trusted him to make a play.
With under 10 seconds remaining, the 23-year-old big man faced up to isolate Nets forward Jeff Green from the left wing. Adebayo waited until there was under four seconds remaining to begin his drive towards the left block, where he created space with a subtle step back before the ball left his hands with under one second remaining.
As the buzzer rang, the ball rattled home.
