Bam Adebayo had a career-high 32 points, helping the Miami Heat take down the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The 23-year-old center was praised by his teammate Jimmy Butler after the game.

Butler went as far as to say Adebayo will be the reason why the Heat will win a championship. They will face the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals.

“He’s the heart and soul of this thing. I keep saying it, but he’s going to be the reason that we win a championship… I just love being around him. He’s a good dude. He cares about winning. He cares about his teammates,” Butler said per Alex Kennedy of Basketball News.
