Lake Bona Vista, Florida — 20 years old, a rookie, he is the first playoff player and is close to the NBA Finals.

So what did Taylor Herro of Miami do? The 13th pick in the 2019 draft meets like an All-Star.

He scored a career-high 37 points on 14 of 21 shots, including 5 of 10 three-pointers. In Wednesday’s 4th game, he defeated Boston with a 3-1 lead and defeated Boston 112-109. Eastern Conference Finals.

“He is confident. His fear is impermanent,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “But he works modestly enough to become a coach and accept the guidance of senior players in our team, and he continues to gain greater confidence as we move forward.”

Herro scored 22 points in the second half, including 17 in the fourth quarter. His performance set a record:

The rookie set a Heat record for most points in the playoffs;

-Be the youngest in the final with 30 points or more;

-The rookie set the record for most points in the final;

-Become the second youngest player in the playoffs, scoring 35 points or more.

Celtics coach Stevens (Brad Stevens) said: “Tonight, Herro’s shooting ability is our own problem, and there are differences in the game.” “Tonight, Herro performed very well. In To him, that edge looks like the sea.”

Herro said: “I think once you see a few shots down, and when you shoot rhythmically, that is-the game is going on. I know where I am going to shoot and I will be in the next round of the same game. Get the same shot opportunities in the game. This is just to make them successful and get the rhythm early.

But this is not only the lens, but also the timing of many shots-when the Heat need a bucket, in the next few shots.

Spoelstra said: “You know, the background of these achievements is the big divider in the league, and these are pressure balls.” “We have to step up against very good defense. He played at the end of the bell. . You know, that’s his skill. He can make dribbles. You know, they will trap you, and you need someone who can break the defense and create opportunities, and these opportunities are not necessarily there.”

Heat All-Star Jimmy Butler said: “There are not many people who have the opportunity to achieve such outstanding results in the playoffs and enter such a game.” “But for him, this is another day in the office. I think this makes all of us smile. We are all happy for him because he knows his abilities and he is confident. He has been doing it all year. So for him, there is no pressure. He will continue to do it. The right way to play basketball.”
