One can only imagine what the Miami Heat would have looked like in the playoffs and especially this series with Tyler Herro playing like the Sixth Man of the Year he was in the regular season. A bitter pill to swallow to say the least. – 12:41 AM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Five Degrees of Heat from Sunday night’s 100-96 loss to Celtics: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. Butler’s all-or-nothing decision.
2. The Strus 3-pointer that wasn’t.
3. Butler again a cut above.
4. Adebayo with a strong finish.
5. Herro back, but not himself. – 12:33 AM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Erik Spoelstra: “This team was here to compete for a title. In that regard, I think we lived up to those expectations. But we fell short and we’ll never know.” – 11:57 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I wrote before the series in my preview for @celticsblog that Erik Spoelstra is the best coach in the NBA.
Nothing has changed for me. He’s unbelievable. Especially what he gets out of every guy on his roster. – 11:55 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
What’s clear from this Erik Spoelstra press conference is that the Heat were dealing with a lot of injuries throughout this series. – 11:54 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
P.J. Tucker played just 17 minutes tonight. Erik Spoelstra hinted that it was because of an injury, but he declined to give details. – 11:51 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Erik Spoelstra:
“I have so much freaking respect for the guys in the locker room.” – 11:48 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Erik Spoelstra says he thought it was about to be an insane storyline for Jimmy on that pull-up three:
“I love that about Jimmy. That was the right look.”
Says he thought it was going down as it left his hand – 11:47 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Erik Spoelstra on Jimmy Butler’s pull-up three in the final seconds: “I love that about Jimmy. … That was the right look.” – 11:47 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Erik Spoelstra:
“It’s one of the worst feelings in the world to address your locker room after a game like this.” – 11:44 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Erik Spoelstra wins the challenge. Instead of Kyle Lowry’s fifth foul, it is Jaylen Brown’s fourth, and it becomes Miami ball. – 10:52 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat still fighting the good fight, down 82-75 going into fourth. Butler with 31, Adebayo 21 . . . and that’s pretty much it. No Herro yet in second half. – 10:37 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat only went eight deep in first half. Based on how Herro looked, might only be seven deep in second half. No Caleb Martin. No Duncan Robinson. No Dewayne Dedmon. – 10:12 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
They gotta get Herro out of the game….he’s like 20 percent – 9:37 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro looking like someone without his legs. – 9:37 PM
Brian Geltzeiler @BGeltzNBA
And now the hunting of Herro is weighing on Miami. Celtics dictating almost every matchup – 9:27 PM
A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely
I guess the fourth time is the charm. Boston went at Tyler Herro four consecutive trips, finally scored on Marcus Smart lay-up. – 9:23 PM
Adam Himmelsbach @AdamHimmelsbach
Celtics going right at Tyler Herro, and having success. – 9:23 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Strong pass by Herro out of the aggressive trap to find Bam. – 9:21 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
The Herro-Bam PnR has been missed – 9:21 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat’s second assist comes with 9:06 left in second period (Herro to Adebayo). – 9:21 PM
Abby Chin @tvabby
Semi-standing ovation for Tyler Herro checking in.
Bam Adebayo said this morning after shoot around the groin strain was a “sensitive” injury. I almost lol-ed. – 9:17 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Here comes Tyler Herro. Heat need to find some way to get an offensive rhythm — they have put themselves in a big hole early. Question is always the same for this group: Who can help Jimmy? – 9:17 PM
Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria
Tyler Herro to the rescue ? – 9:16 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Tyler Herro coming in for his first minutes in a while. – 9:16 PM
Adam Himmelsbach @AdamHimmelsbach
Here comes Herro with 11:37 left in the second. Almost felt like a break glass in case of emergency, and down 15 early qualifies. – 9:16 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Tyler Herro in the game with 11:37 left in the second quarter. – 9:16 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
I stand corrected: Tyler Herro is now checking in here early in the second quarter to a standing ovation. – 9:16 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Tyler Herro in. – 9:16 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Tyler Herro checking in for the first time – 9:16 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro now enters. – 9:15 PM
Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
wonder if we see tyler herro here – 9:12 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Obviously a lot of game left, but looking early on like Tyler Herro was a decoy, much like Robert Williams in Game 7 against Milwaukee. Victor Oladipo is once again in off the bench in Herro’s customary spot. – 9:07 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Victor Oladipo and Gabe Vincent are the first two players off the Heat’s bench. No Tyler Herro yet. – 9:02 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Oladipo into the game not Herro – 9:01 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Oladipo ahead of Herro, which is telling. – 9:01 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro is back watching from Heat bench. – 8:49 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Tyler Herro not on the court for pregame introductions. We’ll see if/how much he plays tonight after missing the last three games with a groin injury. – 8:44 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro into tunnel pregame. Wondering if it’s a matter of trying to keep warm during game in wake of strain. – 8:39 PM
Kurt Helin @basketballtalk
Game 7 all hands on deck: Heat’s Herro, Celtics Smart and Williams cleared to play nba.nbcsports.com/2022/05/29/gam…8:06 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
my guess is that Herro will get some early run and the Heat will go from there. if he’s too much of a defensive liability, Spo could stick with Oladipo, Vincent and Martin off the bench. – 7:54 PM
Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria
Tyler Herro (groin) intends to play tonight in Game 7 per @Adrian Wojnarowski7:34 PM
Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA
Tyler Herro has had a net rating of -19.3 against the Celtics in the playoffs — up from his net rating of -23.1 against the Celtics in the regular season. – 7:12 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
How deep do we think the rotations go tonight?
Boston plays seven tonight imo: Smart, Jaylen, Tatum, Horford, RWIII, Grant, White
Heat play Jimmy, PJ, Kyle, Bam, Strus, Vincent, Herro and Oladipo, but cut at least one, if not two of those guys out in the second half. – 7:09 PM

‘If you’re a competitor, you want this kind of scenario more than any other scenario that this game can provide’.
Erik Spoelstra sets the tone for Game 7 and emphasizes the Heat’s biggest motivation. And it’s not Draymond Green’s comment. #HEATCulture
