Tyler Herro came to the rescue of the Miami Heat on Sunday against the Detroit Pistons on the road. Herro stepped up, particularly in the clutch, to help deliver the win for the Heat. His heroics surely was not lost on Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra, who was all praises of the shooting guard during the postgame press conference.
“He has that clutch gene…He's a killer down the stretch,” Spoelstra said of Tyler Herro.
Herro scored 19 points in the game on just 7-for-17 shooting from the field, but he scored 10 of those points in the final four minutes of the contest, going 3-for-3 from the floor with two rebounds and an assist during that crucial stretch.
Also coming up big for the Heat were Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo. Butler led Miami with 26 points on 8-for-11 shooting from the floor with 109 assists and four rebounds, while Adebayo came up with 22 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, and three blocks in an all-around effort over the course of 39 minutes.
Tyler Herro and the Heat have now won three of their last four games and will look to keep it going when they host the New York Knicks this coming Thursday. The Heat improved to 39-34 after the win against the Pistons, good for seventh in the Eastern Conference at the moment.
Herro has been the most efficient scorer for the Heat, but he's shown multiple times that he can be counted upon to make the buckets that matter the most. On the season, he is second among Heat players with an average of 5.8 points in the fourth quarter on 46.5 percent shooting from the field and 42.3 percent from deep.
