Tyler Herro scored a career high 37 points Wednesday, leading the Miami Heat to a 112-109 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. He scored 17 points in the fourth quarter, and his 37 points are the most by a 20-year-old in the playoffs since Magic Johnson scored 42 in 1980.
Yeah, that’s good company to be in.
Herro averaged 13.2 points in the conference semifinals against Milwaukee. He is averaging 20.5 points against Boston and has shot 9-of-22 (40.9 percent) from three-point range in his last two games.
“He is the real deal,” Medina said. “When you talk to people in the organization, they think that he is a star in the making.”
