Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo applauded the team’s recent commitment to finding their defensive identity following Friday’s 106-95 road win vs. the New Orleans Pelicans.

(via Bally Sports Sun):

John Crotty: “I love what you did blocking shots tonight, Bam. Heat #30 out of 30 team in shot blocking, but you had three personally, the team overall had a season-high eleven. Just an outstanding defensive performance protecting your rim.”

Adebayo: “Yeah, that’s been a big emphasis for us these last nine games, finding our identity. I always said, let our defense be our offense, and guys have bought into that.”
