Video: Heat’s Tyler Herro feeds Derrick Jones Jr., Bam Adebayo back-to-back lobs
Rookie Tyler Herro has been lighting up the score board for the Miami Heat this season but as it turns out, he can also make plays for his teammates as well.
The 19-year-old former Kentucky Wildcat displayed some impressive court vision in the Heat’s hosting of the Indiana Pacers at the AmericanAirlines Arena of Friday night.
Herro created two highlight-worthy scoring opportunities at the nine-minute mark of the second canto, feeding his high-flying teammates Derrick Jones Jr. and Bam Adebayo in succession.
Herro drew in the Indiana defense when he made his way to the paint before locating Jones who made a sweet backdoor cut. He threw the ball way up and Jones delivered the rest, going full-blown “Airplane Mode” and finishing a difficult reverse two-handed flush.

Herro wasn’t done just yet, as he replicated the same play in the ensuing possession. After Jones came up with a defensive stop against Domantas Sabonis, Herro led the break a connected on a pretty two-man game with Adebayo who finished with a two-handed hammer to give Miami a six-point advantage, 36-30.
The Heat held on a slim 58-55 lead at the half with hero pitching in three points, seven rebounds and three assists in 13 minutes.
