The Miami Heat is on the verge of making their latest appearance in the NBA Finals after taking a 3-1 lead over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. A critical factor in their success has been the impact rookie Tyler Herro, the No. 13 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
There has been no greater display of Herro’s long-term potential than the contributions he provided the Heat in Game 4. He produced 37 points while going 14-of-21 (66.7%) from the field and 5-of-10 (50%) from deep with 6 rebounds and 3 assists.
Entering the 2019 NBA Draft, Herro flew under the radar as most of the attention was on Zion Williamson and Ja Morant at the top of the projected draft order. Now, Herro is quickly emerging as one of the top players in his draft class.
It’s a true testament to the scouting of the Heat organization to discover Herro, but also his growth throughout the season is a great show of their player development. Managing to hit on draft picks between Herro and Bam Adebayo has been a pivotal reason for Miami’s resurgence.
