Tyler Herro is huge difference maker on Heat’s offensive plan. His great season rewarded with the 6th Man of the Year trophy. In his 3rd season in the NBA his impact is big. And he’s just in the beginning. #HEATCulture
Well deserved, @Tyler Herro

AP story: Tyler Herro wins 6th Man of the Year, first player to do so as member of Heat. “When you look at our roster, if I was our coach, I would probably bring myself off the bench, too,” Herro said.

NBA Sixth Man of the Year wasn’t really a close race. Tyler Herro won — and received 96 (!!!) first-place votes. #Cavs Kevin Love finished in second — a remarkable turnaround for him given the previous few seasons. Love received 3 first-place votes, including mine. – 6:36 PM

5 takeaways from Heat-Sixers, Game 1…
▪️ The Sixers’ center problem.
▪️ The good & bad of Philly’s zone.
▪️ Targeting Tyler Herro.
▪️ Not enough from Harden.
▪️ The Heat’s wrinkle on a familiar ATO.

SOUND ON
The Tyler Herro-Bam Adebayo dynamic is real
How Miami beat Philly with straight up Herro-Bam two-man sets…
We saw Tyler as the handler and Bam as the screener, but keep an eye out for the inverted action frequently as the adjustment in the series:

In Game 1 vs. the Sixers he droped 25pts, 9/17 FG, 7 assists. Difference maker. #HEATCulture12:44 AM

I asked Tyler Herro about his on-court connection with Bam Adebayo as of late:
“He makes it easy on me and I’m glad he’s with us.”

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
I asked Spo tonight about the Herro-Bam PnR combo, and how much he’s seen it grow:
“They’re our young guns…They’ve gained a lot of confidence in their two man actions.”
Here’s what he said:

Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
Sixers-Heat was sleepy until the Heat realized the Sixers’ only way to get the ball inside the 3pt line was to bull-rush the little guys. So they pushed more defenders up, executed harder switches, and crowded Philly so they had no time to attack Herro. The ATL plan, basically – 10:47 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
I asked Tyler Herro about when he felt his connection with Bam Adebayo grew most:
“After All-Star break.”
Says “he’s a hard target to miss.”
“I’m glad he’s with us.” – 10:37 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Herro, on Oladipo: “We can play together. People don’t think we can. We’re trying to find a balance of who’s handling and who’s playing off the ball.” – 10:36 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Bam Adebayo on Tyler Herro:
“He’s become one of the top scorers. At that age, at that size, doing what he’s doing, he makes it look easy.”
“We’re like brothers.” – 10:32 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Spo talked about both Herro and Bam’s night
But I asked him about the growth of Herro and Bam out of the high PnR together tonight, and that combo in two man actions:
“They’re our young guns…They really complement each other well.”
Said it began with reps when guys went down – 10:21 PM

What Doc Rivers told me about Tyler Herro in March:
“His rookie year, I actually made a statement to someone – I think I was coaching the Clippers – that I said, ‘Man, this guy is gonna be a superstar.’ And that was the first time we played him, and he didn’t play that well… – 9:26 PM

Sixers are gaining some advantages by targeting Herro. Just missing some open 3s. – 9:18 PM

Heat stretch their lead back out to double digits at 78-68 after Herro buries a 3. He has 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting. They’ve outscored the Sixers 28-17 in the third quarter. – 9:11 PM

Wow Sixers had no idea what defense they were in, just straight up didn’t guard Herro up top. – 9:11 PM

Scott Foster doesn’t know Jack Harlow, but Jack Harlow knows Tyler Herro. A 3 from the (presumed) #6MOY puts Miami up 10 with 3:02 left in the third. – 9:10 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
DJ actually hasn’t been too terrible in the 2nd half. Blocked Butler, got a very good contest on that Herro fadeaway, had a nice cut on the find from Harden for a dunk. – 9:10 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Heat are extremely attuned to either Maxey or Harden on Herro. Harden in particular is too good to just help, I think Heat need to just live with that matchup until Harden kills it repeatedly. (I know he hit one stepback on Herro) – 8:18 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Herro-Bam PnR is there all day
Herro’s too much of a threat, and Jordan or Millsap can’t stay with a rolling Bam
Both in drop – 8:07 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
That lineup intrigued me:
Vincent and Martin for pressure defensively up top
Herro and Dipo as creators
Then Bam
I’d like to see more – 8:01 PM
