Brook Lopez caused a laugh riot by imitating Bam Adebayo flopping to get free throws during his free throw routine.
The Heat came back from behind with a spirited second half display to beat the Bucks in their second game of a back-to-back set. This takes the team to a 2-2 record, while the Bucks are now 2-3 and below .500. That the Heat did this tonight without even having Jimmy Butler in their ranks makes it all the more special.
The Bucks will be looking not to succumb to any more shock losses like the one to the Knicks and the Heat again. They have been a great regular season team the past two seasons, and will want to keep it that way.
What Brook Lopez did to mock Bam Adebayo
The Bucks had a sizeable lead at that point, but were unable the Heat at arm’s length. Bam led the charge in the second half, getting Brook Lopez into foul trouble. The way Bam earned this free throw is hard evidence of the same.

One guy, who’s clearly not a Lakers fan, questioned why more people don’t do this to LeBron James. The answer is pretty easy – the league gives James more superstar calls than anyone else. And with good reason.
James is one of the toughest guys to officiate. He initiates a ton of contact, but he absorbs a lot too. If the guy with the best physique in the league doesn’t go down, flop, refs are less likely to notice him getting hacked. Refs usually err on the side of caution with him.
