Dwyane Wade, Donovan Mitchell had the same 1-word reaction to Tyler Herro’s Game 4
Miami Heat sharpshooter Tyler Herro was a walking bucket in Game 4 as the 20-year old dropped a 37-point performance to lead the Heat to a huge 3-1 advantage over the Boston Celtics. The former Duke standout had both NBA legend Dwyane Wade and Utah Jazz superstar Donovan Mitchell hyped and wow-ing from their respective homes as they watched the rookie blossom into a bonafide superstar in front of all our eyes at basketball’s biggest stage.

Tyler Herro’s impressive play had everyone’s jaws on the floor as he made bucket after bucket and had his defenders guessing all-game long as the Heat came out on top with a slim 112-109 victory over Boston. Herro and the Heat are now just one win away from heading back to the NBA Finals.
The rookie scored started out strong and scored 20 points in the first half and made sure to keep his foot in the pedal as he added 17 more points in the back-and-forth second half. Herro, who played 36 minutes off the Miami Heat bench, even added six rebounds and three assists to cap off an all-around dazzling performance.
Herro has proven all season that there seems to be no situation that’s too big for him as he’s been displaying poise and unlimited swagger every time he hits the floor for the Heat. The NBA All-Rookie Second Team member has dropped double digits in every game so far in this year’s playoffs with 14.8 points per game average coming into Game 4. Herro outdid himself and dropped a playoff career-high of 37, just four short of his regular-season career-high of 41.
