Tyler Herro and the Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics on Sunday night to earn a spot in the 2020 NBA Finals.
The rookie out of Kentucky was excellent in Game 6, scoring 19 points on 8 of 13 shooting and dishing out seven assists.
The only person more thrilled with Herro and the Heat’s success than him proved to be his new girlfriend, Katya Elise Henry.
She ultimately showcased her excitement on Instagram with a series of videos that quickly went viral.

A few days back, when Henry was asked how she and Herro celebrated a win earlier in the series, this was how she replied:

Safe to assume the celebration was even better this time around.
After Game 6, Herro reflected on making the NBA Finals in his first year as a pro.
“Yeah, it feels amazing,” he said.
“Obviously all year we’ve been working and working to get to the Finals. Obviously the main goal is to win the Finals, but it’s an amazing feeling just to get there. And it’s one of our goals that has been checked off.”
Next up for Herro and Miami will be a showdown against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers are currently listed as 5-point favorites heading into Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night.

That said – nobody expected the Heat to get to this point.
Although beating an injury-ravaged Indiana Pacers team is not the world’s most impressive feat, demolishing the Milwaukee Bucks and Celtics unquestionably legitimizes this group.
Will Miami be able to shock the world and beat Los Angeles to capture the NBA Title?
We’ll find out once and for all over the next two weeks.
