Former Kentucky Wildcats guard Tyler Herro dropped 37 points in a Game 4 victory for the Miami Heat. Sending them 3-1 in the series, the former Wildcat and lottery pick in the 2019 NBA Draft broke and/or created several records with his stellar performance.
The Heat have been the story of Eastern Conference playoffs as they’ve lost just twice in 13 appearances.
While Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo have been consistent threats, it’s only been Tyler Herro and Goran Dragic that have notched double figures in each of those 13 performances.
As for Herro, he’s been the postseason’s best rookie, and the number of jerseys being sold is reflecting his extreme rise in popularity. Herro’s jersey, per Darren Rovell, has been the best selling for the Fanatics network.
This should be a pretty cool moment for Herro.
He’s a rookie, and he’s becoming one of the most well-known players in the league. Continuing to back up his claim of being a bucket, Herro’s game has ascended to star level over the last few weeks.
