With one win away to advance to their second NBA Finals in three years, the Miami Heat will seriously bet on Tyler Herro to play his best basketball.
League sources have confirmed that the microwave two-guard is set to take the floor this Sunday after missing the last three games of their Conference Finals matchup against the Boston Celtics. Herro was then shelved to nurse his groin injury, but he passed the requisite tests of the team’s training staff to finally play this Game 7.
“It’s all hands on deck,” Spoelstra said about Herro’s availability.
The reigning KIA Sixth Man of the Year is averaging 13.5 points per game to go along with 4.1 boards and 2.9 assists this postseason. He is expected to give a necessary back-up offensive carry to Jimmy Butler to pull off the series.
The Celtics and the Heat are moments away to take the Game 7 stage. The emerging winner will go for a date with the waiting Golden State Warriors in the championship round.
