Brad Stevens praised Tyler Herro for his career night in Game 4 between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat.

Herro dropped a career-high 37 points (14/21 shooting, 5/10 from beyond the arc), coming off the bench for the Heat.

“The rim must have looked like the ocean to him,” the head coach of Boston said about the rookie guard of Miami, per Trevor Haas of the Boston Globe.

Herro and the Heat defeated the Celtics (109-112) and now are one win away from the Eastern Conference Finals (3-1).

Game 5 is on Friday.
