Adebayo Triple-Double, Doncic Scores 29

Grace Higgins | January 28th, 2020

On a depressing Monday night across the NBA world, Bam Adebayo registered a triple-double, while Luka Doncic scored 29 points.

Adebayo might be the superstar for the Miami Heat moving forward. Against the Orlando Magic, Adebayo scored 20 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and assisted 10 teammates on made baskets. The performance was for Kobe Bryant, who Adebayo was hoping to meet for the first time at this year’s All-Star Weekend.

This is Adebayo’s third triple-double of the season, as he eyes for his first All-Star selection in just his third season. The game was in Miami, so of course the Heat won, as they’re 21-2 at home and 32-14 overall on the season. Adebayo is averaging 15.9 points, 10.4 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game this season.

To start the game, the Heat and Magic honored Bryant by taking 8-second and 24-second violations to begin the game and starting the game with a video tribute to the Los Angeles Lakers legend.

Side note about the Magic tonight: they’ve played a league-high 15 games in the month of January.

Doncic, who wore basketball shoes with all the victim’s names of the Bryant helicopter crash on them, scored 29 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in a 107-97 win against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Thunder point guard Chris Paul sat out for personal reasons.

Both the Dallas Mavericks and Thunder took 8-and 24-second violations to begin the game, honoring Bryant. Yesterday, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban retired the number 24 to honor Bryant.

After the game, Doncic took to social media to talk about how this was one of the toughest games of his life to play and how Bryant will forever be with the basketball world.

Due to the Bryant news, the Lakers and Clippers have postponed their Tuesday night matchup.
