Brad Stevens opened up about Bam Adebayo and why it is difficult to guard the center of the Miami Heat.

Stevens said it is the Heat’s shooters that makes it so hard for the team to guard Adebayo.

“It’s a really hard thing to guard. Do you stay with him or do you stay with a shooter? Those guys come off screens 100 miles per hour.

Both Bam and Kelly (Olynyk) are great handoff players and great with the fake. It’s really difficult,” Stevens told Celtics reporters, via Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports.

Through the first three games of the Celtics-Heat series, Adebayo is averaging 22.0 points, 10.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 38.6 minutes.
