The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat 102-96 on Tuesday night. They now hold a 3-1 lead in the best of seven series, and are just one game away from taking home an NBA Championship.
There are a number of reasons why Miami ultimately lost this outing, but fans on Twitter really seemed to lay a lot of the blame at the doorstep of rookie Tyler Herro.
Herro, 20, has become something of a viral star over the past few weeks. A lot of that has to do with his performance in the postseason up to this point, and some of it has to do with his girlfriend.
Herro finished Game 4 with 21 points on 18 shots and a +/- of -13.
Fans were merciless on Twitter.
I’ll say it: Herro and Robinson are liabilities right now and it sucks given how good they are offensively

Sucks cause you don’t wanna tell a player like Herro to chill. His confidence got him to where he is but at some point you gotta tell him to chill the fuck out.

Game 5 between the Lakers and Heat is scheduled for Friday night.
If Herro and his team don’t get it together and make this thing competitive, then their season is going to end in very disappointing fashion.
Things are getting interesting. https://t.co/I2Cl16w2bh
