Wade joined Miami as a rookie in 2004, which means that his scoring record lasted 16 long years before Herro quashed it on Wednesday night. He may not have said it out right, but we’re sure that Wade is proud of what Herro has achieved with his huge game.
Herro has been a key cog for the Heat all season long, averaging 13.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists, while also connecting on 2.1 triples per contest on a 38.9-percent clip. The former Kentucky standout has raised his level of play in the playoffs, and has since been putting up 14.8 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 4.0 assists, with 2.4 3-pointers per game.
Needless to say, Herro had the best game of his young career on Wednesday, and what a time for him to come up big for Miami. Herro’s 37 points led both sides in scoring. The rookie was aggressive from the get-go, not letting up until the final buzzer. This was exactly the type of attitude Miami had to have coming into this one, with momentum on Boston’s side.
The Heat have taken a commanding 3-1 series lead and at the heart of it all was Tyler Herro.
