Miami Heat star Bam Adebayo was encouraging new point guard Delon Wright to be aggressive during last night’s 121-110 road win vs. the Sacramento Kings (13 points/2 rebounds/5 assists/2 steals/1 block/zero turnovers/3-5 FG/2-4 3-PT/5-6 FT/+9 +/-).

(via Bally Sports Sun):

Ira Winderman: “The way Delon played, it looked like he was deferring early, because maybe he doesn’t know every play. But it looks like when he needed to do something; the two three-pointers in the third, stepping up making plays. Did you sort of almost see a growth within the game of a guy getting comfortable by the minute?”

Adebayo: “Yeah, and that’s also all of us being in his ear telling him, ‘Be aggressive, make plays. We didn’t bring you here for nothing. Take advantage of your opportunity, you got the start tonight.’ I told him from the get-go, ‘Take advantage of your opportunity.’”
