Tyler Herro, who was the second-leading scorer for the Miami Heat and played a crucial role in Miami’s play-in win against the strong Chicago Bulls, has not been able to play since Game 1 of Bucks series. Herro, the Miami Heat’s second-leading scorer, played a key role in Miami’s play-in victory against the Chicago Bulls.
According to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, “Sunday’s Game 2 will be a test.” If not Sunday, Game 3 will be played on Wednesday in Miami. Tyler Herro, who suffered a right hand injury, is expected to be back in action by then .”.
The Heat cannot rely on just Caleb Martin to score if they are going up against a team such as the Denver Nuggets. Tyler Herro could be the Miami Heat’s main pivotal change in the Finals.
Miami Heat’s NBA Finals Preview
The NBA Finals this year will be special in that two of the best coaches, Erik Spoelstra, and Michael Malone, will face off. It will be fascinating to see how Erik Spoelstra lets his team defend the Jokic and Murray spanish pick-and roll, as other teams were swept away by this very same offense.
Bam Adebayo is only 6’10”, so the Heat still lacks the size required to guard Jokic in the post. Jokic, Gordon and the Nuggets will be looking to exploit mismatches in the Heat’s smaller lineups. Miami, on the other hand, has Jimmy Butler. Butler is one of the top players in the league.
Mike Malone likes to run a three-man game pick-and-roll with Jokic setting the screen and Murray letting the defense choose their poison by trying to double or leave him for an iso which would result in a drop-off to Jokic or a pass into the corner for s wide-open Michael Porter Jr. Mike Malone runs a pick-and-roll game with three players. Murray sets the screen, and Jokic is the one who makes the pick. The defense can then choose whether to try to double him or leave Murray for an iso. This will result in either a pass or drop to Jokic.
It will be fascinating to see how Miami Heat counters the Nuggets’ offense, as they did to the Bucks in the earlier rounds of the playoffs. The Bucks also play basketball that is very similar to Nuggets. According to reports, Tyler Herro is expected to return for Game 2 of this series. This could be a much longer series than experts had predicted.
