Tyler Herro is in the midst of an impressive playoff run with the Miami Heat. Not only are they the top seed in the Eastern Conference, but they’re also playing like it.
Herro, specifically, is playing some of the best ball of his career. In Game 1 of the semis against the Philadelphia 76ers he put up 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting from the field and 4-of-6 shooting from beyond the arc.
So far in the playoffs Herro has averaged 14.8 points per game on 42 percent shooting from the field. Not quite the stats he put up in his memorable rookie campaign, but still very solid.
Herro isn’t just winning on the court, though. He is also doing quite well for himself off it.
Herro and his longtime girlfriend Katya Elise Henry, who is also the mother of his child, have had their fair share of ups and downs. But they seem to be in a fantastic place right now.
Just this week, Henry took to social media to share Herro’s special gift for her on their anniversary:
This isn’t the first time these two have opted to do something nice for each other. Henry also made it a point to make Herro’s birthday very special not long ago.
All in all, many thought the pair wouldn’t last. It has been a crazy ride for them to get to this point, featuring some very high highs, a weird love triangle, and a bizarre situation involving Kyle Kuzma.
Through it all, they stayed together. And they seem to be doing better than ever.
That’s one way to move on. https://t.co/xAnznPTAKe
