The Miami Heat are riding high off good energy as they get set to take on the Indiana Pacers Friday night. Coming off back-to-back wins to avenge back-to-back losses to the very same teams, the Golden State Warriors and the Sacramento Kings, the Miami Heat appear to be figuring some things out.

Though they still have a long way to go, you absolutely love the response to the turmoil of a 2-5 start to begin the year. That has included a ton of really good play on both sides of the ball and a ton of huge shot-making for the Miami Heat.

On Tuesday night, it was Jimmy Butler that would hit the shot that would ultimately be the game-winner. And on Wednesday night without Butler in the lineup, it would be Tyler Herro’s turn to do the very same thing in the win over the Kings.

And with that, the former just had to let the latter know how he felt about it all. Here was Jimmy Butler’s salute to Tyler Herro’s game and his game-winning shot on Thursday.

The Miami Heat got two huge shots from Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro on consecutive nights. And Butler just had to show Herro some love for his.

The capture comes from Five Reasons Sports, a screen recording of Jimmy Butler’s direct post to his Instagram account.

Captioning the post “we gave em two in a row @nolimitherro”, that was also a nod to the fact that both Butler and Herro had hit game-winning clutch shots on back-to-back occasions to help give their team the win.

Something that is sure to continue to help Herro’s confidence and comfort flourish, you love to see this from two teammates that are so integral to each other’s and ultimately, the team’s success. While they haven’t really been able to get on the most seamless page while occupying the court together this season, this is a very positive sign.

It’s not as if you ever thought there was vitriol among the scenario, however, this support should make figuring it out and finding that fit or balance just that much easier of a process. You love to see Herro and Butler support each other, two of the Heat’s best players, and you love to see them give each other these kinds of reasons to show that support.
