The Miami Heat got a really good win on Friday night over the Atlanta Hawks. While that notion isn’t purely results-based and though it didn’t look the prettiest, at times, the way that the Miami Heat went about getting the win in the end was impressive.

A back and forth affair that saw Trae Young and Clint Capela dominating early, the Miami Heat would have to compete all game long to fight off defeat. That’s exactly what they did, coming up with big offense and defense late in the game.

Kyle Lowry would help seal the deal with a massive shot-fake to dribble-drive to drop-off dime for a Bam Adebayo slam to ice the game, allowing them to go up two points with under 30 seconds left to play.

On the way to this play though, there was a huge Tyler Herro three from long long-range that would help the Heat stay right in it. That was a swing bucket, as making it allowed the Miami Heat to go on to the final result while missing it could have been their nail in the coffin.

With his own offense always being the hot topic with Boy Wonder, he was about helping his teammates get to theirs on Friday. Releasing his own dimes package of tricks in the playmaking department, Herro would dominate the early parts of his minutes with his ability to create for others.

The above was especially crucial and impressive, as Tyler hasn’t been the best lob thrower this year. On top of the fact that it’s good to see him diversifying his game, it’s good to see him convert on that specific type of pass.

The obvious ones, such as an alley-oop lobber’s role, weren’t the only plays he made on Friday though. Take this one in example, a nifty farside kick to the corner for a Gabe Vincent triple after using his handle to penetrate and get into the teeth of the defense.

The Miami Heat have one of the most electrifying young scorers in the NBA in Tyler Herro. The beautiful thing about it though is that he’s only getting better.

Needless to say, his passes were a thing of beauty on Friday night. He would finish with 15 points, five rebounds, and nine assists on the evening.

He would do so while shooting 50 percent from both the floor and the three-point line. That’s not bad for a “backup guard who jacks the most shots“, huh?

It certainly isn’t, especially heading into the playoffs.

With a near 40 point playoff performance already under his belt during his rookie season, 37 points in the Eastern Conference Finals to be exact, you can expect big things from the third-year guy who has catapulted himself into the NBA’s top 25 scoring ranks this season.

He’s done so, all off Miami’s bench, might it be added. On Friday though, it was all about the dimes.

Continuing to add more multipleness to his game with each passing day, the sky truly is the limit for Miami’s young combo guard.
