The Heat escaped with a win on Monday against the Phoenix Suns by the margin of a single free throw, 113-112. Miami’s center Bam Adebayo looked sharp as he posted a double-double on 30 points and ten boards. That makes it three consecutive games in which Adebayo has had at least ten rebounds. Adebayo’s points were the most he has had all year.
