Tyler Herro Discusses Skill Set He’s ‘Working Really Hard’ to Improve Inside NBA Bubble
- Updated: August 10, 2020
Herro delivered, flirting with a triple-double as he scored 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting and added 10 assists and eight rebounds in the game.
The No. 13 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft said that he has been working on improving his playmaking ability since the beginning of the season. That focus has intensified inside the bubble.
“I’ve been working with the ball in my hands really since the beginning of the season,” Herro said. “And now in the bubble, I’ve been working really hard with the ball in my hands. Coach has been helping me a lot. My teammates are starting to trust me more. I’m still young and I’m learning a lot.”
It is a pleasant surprise for Miami, as Herro had been more of a spot-up shooter throughout most of the 2019-20 campaign.
The 20-year-old did admit that he is still a work in progress as a primary distributor, but he is continuing to learn and grow in that department.
“It’s definitely a learning experience for me,” Herro said. “Being a natural scorer, or shooter … it’s kind of hard to just balance the two. But it’s a learning experience knowing when to be in attack mode and then when to set guys up. … I’m continuing to learn.”
The Heat will need everything they can get from Herro on Monday night as they take on the Indiana Pacers in a battle for the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
