In the recent match-up of Miami Heat and Washington Wizards it was Tyler Herro running the game and making big time differences throughout the game at FTX Arena on both the ends. The Miami Heat are currently ranked as the 4th seed in the eastern conference of the league with the record of 22 wins and 13 losses and the Washington Wizards are currently ranked as the 8th seed in the eastern conference with the record tied at 17 wins and 17 losses.
Tyler Herro was ejected in the last match-up of Miami Heat with Detroit Pistons and coming into the game against Washington Wizards had revenge on his mind and really ran his plan proving his worth while carrying the offense of Miami Heat with Duncan Robinson who made three pointers and Jimmy Butler who had career high 15 assists in a 7 point win against the Washington Wizards as the final box score was 119-112.
Tyler Herro was criticized a lot after National Basketball Association’s Bubble time, especially the last season when Tyler was not having that of a good time playing Basketball and even Miami Heat got swept by the Giannis Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee Bucks in first round itself. But coming into this season Tyler Herro is making a strong case for everyone who doubted him to take back what they said as he is reminding the league why he was nicknamed “Bucket” just a season prior.
