Also worth noting that the Heat has outscored opponents by 7.1 points per 100 possessions in the 226 minutes Adebayo, Butler, Herro have played together this season.
A lot has gone wrong for Heat so far. But when those three have been on court, the results have been very good. – 12:56 PM

Jimmy Butler ranks fourth in the NBA in win shares per 48 minutes this season behind only Nikola Jokic, Anthony Davis and Luka Doncic.
