Tyler Herro: I have one of the purest shots in the world

Perhaps, when the Heat travels through the mid-Atlantic and Northeast on a four-game road trip that begins Saturday in Washington, second-year guards Tyler Herro and Kendrick Nunn will locate missing three-point shots. Two of the NBA’s sweet-shooting rookies — Nunn early last season and Herro throughout the season — have seen their three-point percentages plunge early this season. Herro’s three-point accuracy has dropped from 38.9 percent during his rookie season and 37.5 percent in the playoffs to 29.7 (11 for 37) so far this season.
Overall this season, Nunn is shooting 11 for 29 from the field and 1 for 9 on threes. So the question now is whether he can regain the offensive efficiency that was on display for much of the first half of his rookie season. He will be a restricted free agent after the season. “I really respect K-Nunn and his approach,” Erik Spoelstra said Friday. “I think he’s going to be successful in this league a long time. He has a mental stability and toughness to continue to work and be ready for his opportunity. He has a very good knack for finding different ways to put the ball in the basket.”
Nunn’s role shrunk in the playoffs, averaging 6.1 points on 39.1 percent shooting from the field, 2.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 15 games (zero starts). “As for the ups and downs, I had to fight through some adversity,” said Nunn, who recently had his $1.7 million salary for the upcoming season fully guaranteed by the Heat. “I also had some success. So I think I had an overall good rookie year, and I’m looking to build and continue to improve and do more.”
