MIAMI — Bam Adebayo gave all he had.

These days for the Miami Heat it often takes more.

Again short-handed, this time playing in the injury absences of Jimmy Butler, Max Strus, Gabe Vincent and Duncan Robinson, among others, Erik Spoelstra’s team once again had a fight to the finish.

There also is nothing new about that.

So down to the wire it went for the second time in three nights against the visiting Washington Wizards, this time the Heat escaping with a 110-107 victory Friday night.

On a night he dominated, Adebayo scored five consecutive late critical points to extend the Heat’s home winning streak to five.


Adebayo led the Heat with a season-high 38 points, along with 12 rebounds. He was part of a dynamic pick-and-roll game with Tyler Herro, who finished with 10 assists and 11 points.

The Heat also got 13 points, eight assists and seven rebounds from Kyle Lowry, as well as 20 points, including a pair of closing free throws from Caleb Martin.

Bradley Beal, who sat out the Heat’s Wednesday night victory over the Heat due to a thigh contusion, and Kyle Kuzma each scored 28 for the Wizards.
