On September 26, Beijing time, the Heat lost to the Celtics 108-121 in the away game, leading by 3-2. Taylor -
Herro is now the hottest star in the Heat, and his impressive performance of 37 points in G4 has attracted the attention of the entire league. Today he still played on the bench, and the Heat made a good start. Herro played at 6 minutes and 14 seconds, but he never got a call.
The Heat have maintained an advantage of about 10 points. Herro missed a jump shot at 3:36, and then he was forced off the court due to two fouls and failed to make a contribution in the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Herro played with Butler. They were very active on the perimeter defense and would never give the Celtics a chance to make a phone call easily, and they got the chance to score by counterattack. The Greens made adjustments after a timeout. Brown scored 5 points to close the point difference to single digits. Herro finally opened at this time and scored a dry shot in 5 minutes and 21 seconds.
At 3 minutes and 32 seconds, when Herro passed the ball and was intercepted by Tatum and counterattacked, the Heat only led by 5 points. Fortunately, Butler and Robinson were strong, and the Heat held the advantage. Herro only scored 2 points in the first half, but had 2 turnovers and 2 fouls, and seemed to hit the wall.
The second half of the game became more intense, the Green Army hit a 9-0 tie, after a timeout, take advantage of the trend. Jero played at 7 minutes and 19 seconds and then assisted Dragic to score a difficult three-pointer. Facing the crazy counterattack of the Green Army, the Heat need someone to stand up.
Butler's pass and Dragic's breakthrough ended the Heat's scoring drought, but Herro still had no rhythm, and a layup of 4 minutes and 36 seconds was capped. In the last 30 seconds, Herro finally scored three points, but he only scored 5 points in the first three quarters. The Heat lost 16 points in the third quarter and was caught off guard.
The three-pointer at the end of the quarter seemed to finally woke Herro up. At the beginning of the quarter, he made a mid-range jumper and hit another dry draw in 9 minutes and 57 seconds. But it is difficult to limit the Greens' scoring. Brown scored three-pointers and gave them a big blow. In the last 6 and a half minutes, the Heat were 16 points behind.
Herro failed to maintain the front sight at the critical moment, hitting both three-pointers and CIC. At 4 minutes and 59 seconds, he broke Brown's breakthrough, but countered all the hesitation, passing to the outside and letting Dragic cause a three-point foul is also considered a profit. But then Tays teamed up with Brontatum to make a wave of 8-0, and the game went straight into garbage time. It was useless for Herro to score at this time.
