Bam Adebayo of the Miami Heat talked about what it will take for his team to have a chance against the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals.

The 23-year-old center/forward stressed the importance of not relaxing and not letting the Lakers play harder than the Heat.

“There can’t be a second on the floor where they’re playing harder than us. I think that’s where our chance is. We can’t let them just get free layups and get in this motion. That’s when everything starts clicking for them. Just making it tough for them and being smart with the basketball. And then just setting up strategic plays to get easy baskets,” Adebayo said.
