Miami Heat: Wanting Tyler Herro’s Best, It’s Comforting To Know You Don’t Need It
According to their record when he doesn’t have a massive scoring output and their record when he isn’t even going for them on a given night, they are just as good when he hasn’t played this year. Here’s the final bullet point though.
Lastly, when you look at the Boston Celtics game from Wednesday, one of the best, toughest, and hardest fought games of the year across the entire NBA this season, Herro didn’t necessarily explode. He would finish with just 12 points, although he grabbed 10 boards, and dropped off five assists.
The point of it all is as follows. Yes, you would rather have Tyler Herro in the lineup than not in it.
Yes, you would rather have Tyler Herro being Tyler Herro out there on the floor, scoring 20 or more points in a quarter on multiple occasions, giving people the business off the bounce, and being the Scorcerer that he is with the ball in his hands (the man can do magic!).
You would certainly want all of that, as that makes the Miami Heat their very best selves. This is also a part of that point.
They are capable of being a very good team on the very rare occasion, this season, that he isn’t his best self. And that fact should be comforting as well.
