Miami Heat’s Tyler Herro Gives Thoughts on Playing Point Guard After Incredible Performance vs. Phoenix Suns'
2 Min Read

The Miami Heat were unable to hold off the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night, losing 119-112.

However, with the absence of guard Kendrick Nunn, the Heat turned to rookie Tyler Herro at point guard, and the results were promising.

Herro flirted with a triple-double and finished the game with 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting, to go along with 10 assists and eight rebounds. He also only committed two turnovers.

Herro mentioned that he had been working on his ball-handling once the NBA season was halted back in March.

The rookie displayed a lot of poise and was clearly Miami’s best player in this one.

With Jimmy Butler and Nunn out, it is a huge plus for Miami that Herro was able to step in as the primary ball-handler and have this much success.

Miami has a huge game coming up on Monday, as it will face the Indiana Pacers, who defeated the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday.

Both teams are now 43-27, and a win Monday could go a long way for Miami in its quest to lock up the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Heat will be counting on Herro to continue showcasing just how dynamic a player he can be.
