Heat Center Makes Spectacular Block in Playoff Game


The block heard 'round the world.

Heat star Bam Adebayo making a key block near the end of a 117-114 overtime victory over Boston in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Bam blocked Celtics All-Star guard Jayson Tatum's attempt to tie the game with less than a minute to spare in overtime.

Fans first thought it was goal tending, but Tatum remained in contact with the ball, so there was no violation.

After the game, Tatum said: "I was open. He made a great play. That's all it is. He made a good play. Can't do nothing about it."

Game 2 of the series will take place inside the Orlando bubble Thursday night at 7.
