The Miami Heat came into Houston on the second night of back to back set of games. Playing without Jimmy Butler on the previous night in Oklahoma City, they would be without everyone else in the following game on Thursday night.

Without Kyle Lowry, Bam Adebayo, Dewayne Dedmon, Gabe Vincent, and Victor Oladipo, among a few other notable injuries, the Miami Heat would need everyone else that was available to step up. And that’s what they did, including big shots and moments from Orlando Robinson, Haywood Highsmith, and even Duncan Robinson.

However, the man of the hour or the entire evening, in this case, was Tyler Herro. Picking right back up where he left off on Wednesday night, sealing the deal with what was to be a game-winning midrange shot over the defense of the Oklahoma City Thunder, he would come in to have a career night on Thursday.

The Miami Heat got a Tyler Herro career night Thursday and they would need it. Most importantly, Herro’s night would help them get another needed win.

On his way to nailing 10 of his 15 three-point attempts, Herro would proceed to do what he has shown capable of his entire career—flat-out explode on the offensive end. Finishing with 41 points, six rebounds, and two assists on the night, the Miami Heat would need all that Herro would afford them and more.

And have no fear, as the Miami Heat’s best player was there to give it to him. Though not to the output of his young teammate, Jimmy Butler would have himself quite the night too.

Nearly finishing with the triple-double on the evening, 20 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists of his own, Butler would do whatever needed doing for his Miami Heat team on Thursday night to get the win. This was just another in a series of recent games that serve as encouragement for this Heat bunch.

Listen, it isn’t always about the competition, as there are games, such as these, that a team with championship hopes is supposed to win. But for a team like Miami—just searching and trying to make it to consistently being that level of competitor on a night-in and night-out basis, these types of wins are crucial.

It’s all about the ugly ones and though Tyler Herro had a beautiful night, the Miami Heat were able to walk out with another tough, scrappy, and not-so-elegant defeat. That’s all it’s about sometimes and from here, they can keep on building.
