Tyler Herro and the Miami Heat take down the Celtics in Game 4

Rookie shooting guard Tyler Herro played a large role in the Miami Heats game 4 win over the Boston Celtics. The rookie erupted for a career high 37 points on 14/21 shooting while also going 4/4 from the free throw line. Herro also scored the second most points in a playoff game for somebody aged 20 or younger; only behind Magic Johnson for the most ever. The record is still well within reach for the young shooting guard as the Heat potentially still have a lot of playoffs to go.

Heat superstar Jimmy Butler spoke very highly of the rookie after the game. “But for him, it’s another day at the office. I think it makes all of us smile.” The poise of the 20-year old is unmatched and very rarely seen, especially from someone so young. This sort of play is normally reserved from the legends of the game. Players such as LeBron, Stephen Curry, or Kevib Durant are expected to score at high levels. They know that it is expected of them but for a 20-year old to do it, that is rarely seen.

After the game Brad Stevens, Head Coach of the Celtics, had a lot to say about the rookie. “Herro’s shot-making tonight was the difference in the game.” The praise from a coach of Steven’s stature, who has coached very good players and coached good teams, is nothing to ignore.

The emergence of Herro didnt come as a surprise to everyone. People that follow the NBA, especially things such as the NBA Draft, know the significance of the 13th overall pick. Notable players such as Donovan Mitchell, Zach Levine, Devin Booker, and Kobe Bryant were all taken 13th overall. Kobe is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time and the rest of these players are currently at the forefront of the new wave of the NBA.

Herro knows that what he is doing is special but he does not let that get to his head. The 20-year old has faced criticism since high school, when he chose to decommit from The University of Wisconsin and instead attend the University of Kentucky. After his 37 point performance, Herro spoke about what led him to that moment. “At Kentucky, nobody thought I would survive there. Nobody thought I would survive here. At the end of the day, its just betting on myself. That’s what I do. Bet on myself.”

The Heat take on the Celtics in a decisive game 5 on Friday.

Billy to the Bulls?

The Oklahoma City Thunder have parted ways with long-time Head Coach Billy Donovan. It must be assumed that Donovan won’t be avaliable for long as it has been less than six hours and teams such as the Chicago Bulls are already showing interest. Donovan coaching a young Bulls team with all of the pieces that they have, plus a the 4th overall pick might lead to something special.
