(1:35)Miami Heat All-Star big man Bam Adebayo made one of the most memorable blocks in NBA history at the end of a 117-114 overtime victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday night.It's a play that both saved the game for his team and earned him recognition from across the basketball world.With the Heat clinging to a 116-114 lead as the final seconds ticked away in overtime in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Celtics All-Star guard Jayson Tatum drove down the lane past Heat swingman Jimmy Butler. I think what Bam did to save that game and to make sure that we win it by putting his body on the line, that really is a really great play."As he has done throughout the NBA postseason, Butler made several great plays down the stretch, hitting a clutch jumper with 22 seconds remaining in regulation that gave the Heat a brief lead and then completing a three-point play with 12 seconds left in overtime that gave Miami a lead it would not relinquish."That's just his makeup," Spoelstra said of Butler's ability to repeatedly raise the level of his game late.
