Heat center Bam Adebayo says 'there's a little dogfight' in history against Celtics

Following the loss at FTX Arena, Adebayo offered his take on the Celtics-Heat matches. “Game by game, man. Take it game, by game. Opponents are going to be opponents. But at the end of the day, we want to win every game.”

According to a couple of NBA wagering websites, the Heat have the 10th-best chances to win the champion in 2023. Although, sportsbooks understand that this is Miami’s very first 0-2 start in the Erik Spoelstra age.

“That’s the mindset,” continued Bam Adebayo. Obviously, the history in between us, there’s a little dogfight because. But aside from that, simply a game-by-game mindset.”

Based on an overall of 130 routine season video games, the Celtics have a 79-51 all-time record versus the Heat. Last season, Boston completed 2-1 versus Miami throughout the routine season.

Tatum and Brown ended up being the 2nd Celtics duo in franchise history to score 25 points in each of their very first 2 video games to begin a season. They signed up with Robert Parish and Larry Bird (1984-85 season).
