HEAT Bounce Back, Defeat Knicks 98-88

Finally back in the win column.

Thanks to a great second half, the HEAT snapped a six-game losing streak and defeated the Knicks 98-88 Monday night at Madison Square Garden.

And naturally, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo were a big reason why.

Let’s get right into their performances, shall we?

Seriously, he dropped 15 points in the period to help the HEAT seize control.

For a perfect example of just how much he was cookin’, take a look at this awesome drive and left-handed scoop over Julius Randle late in the quarter:

Oh yeah, he also put the finishing touches on the game with this alley-oop jam courtesy of Andre Iguodala’s elite hands and Tyler Herro’s pinpoint lob:

Watch out for Sleeve Jimmy.
