Tyler Herro has been impacting results in multiple ways for the Miami Heat lately. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year was undoubtedly drafted for his shooting ability and has done a lot of that since entering the NBA. But, following a win against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, admitted that head coach Erik Spoelstra might be even happier when he’s not the one scoring.

The Heat beat the Hawks 106-98 on Sunday, with Herro scoring 11 points along with 11 rebounds and 10 assists for the first triple-double of his career. He has averaged 10.0 assists over the last two games and Spoelstra will be hoping the guard will be as instrumental when Miami suits up against the Boston Celtics this Wednesday. Fans will, of course, be hoping the same and will be happy to know they can take advantage of a Miami Club free money no deposit code too.

“Just trying to impact winning,” Herro said of his latest outing, per Sports Illustrated. “Obviously, people know me for my scoring and my ability to create shots. The shot hasn’t been falling but just continuing to impact the game in different ways. Honestly, scoring probably doesn’t make [coach Erik Spoelstra] as happy as he does seeing me impact the game in other ways.”

Herro is averaging 18.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3.8 assists for Miami this season.

“These last couple of games he’s been making amazing reads Just being at his own pace and not letting people speed him up … He was doing the little things,” teammate Adebayo observed. “That’s the biggest thing about off nights.”

The Heat have won their last three games but remain 10th in the Eastern Conference with a 10-11 record so far. They’re now set for two consecutive games against Boston before what should be a challenging fixture against the Memphis Grizzlies.
