Tyler Herro has been on fire this season. The guard exploded for 29 points in the second half against Oregon State, to lead his team back from a ten point deficit en route to an upset victory over the No. 11 ranked Beavers
Tyler Herro is a basketball player with the Philadelphia 76ers. He also has a YouTube channel called “TylerHerroTV” where he posts videos of him playing, and other things. In his latest video, he plays a game of half-court against himself.

The Miami Heat’s comeback victory against the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night was thrilling, but there was one moment in particular that had every player on the bench jumping up and cheering.
Guard Tyler Herro intended to lob a pass to teammate Jimmy Butler, who was waiting near the rim to put the ball in the hoop late in the third quarter. Herro, on the other hand, misfired on the pass and instead scored the most bizarre basket ever. An “alley-oops!” was coined to describe the situation.

Following that, the camera turns to six-time All-Star Kyle Lowry, who was out on a veteran’s rest day, appearing totally surprised and indicating threes with both hands up above his head.
Herro, who has been on fire thus far this season, had 19 points, five assists, and three rebounds on Wednesday night, but the half-court basket should’ve been worth six points, as Lowry said!
Butler addressed the jaw-dropping, unintentional basket at the postgame press conference. The five-time All-Star remarked, “That’s why Tyler is a shooting guard.” “Because the pass he sent me was a disaster.” “However, the youngster is a bucket filler.”
“Whenever we’re on our home court, we want to defend it.”

Herro thrived in the third and fourth quarters, which shouldn’t come as a major surprise after a very unproductive first half in which he missed his first six attempts. The 21-year-old boy wonder is averaging 21.7 points and 5.5 rebounds per game so far this season.
What prompted the change of heart? “Whenever we’re on our home court, we want to defend it,” Herro said.
Against the New Orleans Pelicans, Butler scored 31 points.
Butler returned in spectacular form at the Heat’s home game at the FTX Arena after missing three games due to an ankle injury. He finished the game with 31 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists, helping the club overcome a 15-point hole and win 113-98.
After the game, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra remarked of Butler’s play, “He’s simply in really excellent condition,” according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald, who noted that Butler profited much from the summer.
The Heat’s bench stepped up on Wednesday night, with Udonis Haslem getting some playing time.
Against the Pelicans, the Heat’s deep roster proved to be worthy backups to Herro and Butler, who led the group. On Wednesday night, Miami was shorthanded, as it was missing starting point guard Kyle Lowry and big Bam Adebayo (bruised knee).
P.J. Tucker had 13 points and four rebounds, Gabe Vincent had 13 points, and Caleb Martin had 12 points, six rebounds, and three assists. Max Strus had 15 points and three rebounds.
Even more shocking was Spoelstra’s inclusion of Udonis Haslem, who has already played more minutes this season than he did the whole previous season.
“I don’t trust anybody more than UD,” Spoelstra said when asked why he brought Haslem in when the squad needed a spark. “Why not?” you could ask. according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
On Thursday night, the Heat will return to the FTX Arena. At 7:30 p.m. ET, they will face the Washington Wizards.
