Heat Head Coach Erik Spoelstra spoke on Tyler’s virtuoso performance and his team’s performance as well.
“It wasn’t just Tyler. Our whole second unit turned the game around in the third quarter,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We really didn’t have any offensive rhythm in the first three quarters — and Detroit had a lot to do with that — but we put together some stops and that helped us get going offensively.”
Tyler Herro spoke on the game he played postgame. His play this season has spoke volumes about his mindset and the work he has put in to get better.
“We played sluggishly for three quarters, but we got rolling in the fourth,” said Herro, who had 14 points in the fourth. “I’ve always been the guy who took big shots, all the way back to high school, so this is the situation I love. I want to win games.”
