Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo’s athleticism on full display in Game 3 of his team’s playoff series against the Celtics, putting on his own personal dunk contest in the blowout.

Adebayo put more than a few Boston defenders on posters in the win, which helped the Heat improve their series advantage to 3-0. They now sit just one game away from the NBA Finals.

Adebayo only scored 13 points in that most recent victory, and it seemed they all came by way of the jam. The center was an enforcer in the paint, throwing down slam after slam over the helpless Celtics defense.

He got things started with a monster alley-oop jam over the top of Al Horford in the second quarter, building the Heat’s first-half lead to 11 points.

He followed it up with maybe his most impressive play of the day, backing down Jaylen Brown in the post before using a spin move to get to the hoop. A vicious two-handed tomahawk jam quickly followed as Brown watched from his seat on the floor.

This ridiculous slam gave the Heat a 48-33 advantage.

Adebayo kept the dunk party going in the second half with another electric alley-oop slam, this time over Grant Williams.

The one-handed catch and jam gave viewers a perfect poster shot as Williams unsuccessfully attempted to swat the slam.

The dunk gave the Heat a 20-point lead in what would become a 26-point victory. Adebayo, like most of the Miami starters, wasn’t needed much in the fourth quarter. They can now close out the series with a sweep in Game 4.
