Phoenix Suns vs. Miami Heat | 8-8-2020

The Suns’ fifth game will be against the surprisingly successful Miami Heat. Miami has been a powerhouse all season long, and the Suns have already lost to them once this season, and could very well suffer the same fate in Orlando.

It is becoming a reoccurring theme that every game will be a big game for Ayton, and against Miami, he will have to battle another young stud in Bam Adebayo. Bam is like Ayton, a more traditional big man who gets his work done inside and cleans the glass.

I think it will be fairly doable for Ayton to stop Bam compared to the other centers he will face in Orlando, but you never know especially with a team like Miami also looking to make a deep playoff run.

However, because of that, it could be the same situation as the Clippers where the stars rest and guys like Butler and Adebayo don’t play heavy minutes (which is very unlikely for a true competitor like Jimmy Butler).
