Among the other people impressed with Herro – mentor and teammate Jimmy Butler.

“Not too many people get an opportunity to make it this far in the playoffs and to be in a game like this,” he said.

“But for him, it’s another day at the office. I think it makes all of us smile. We’re all so happy for him because he knows what he’s capable of, and he just plays with so much confidence. He’s been doing it all year long. So to him, there’s no pressure or anything. He’s just going to keep playing basketball the right way.”

Butler didn’t stop there, though.

“He just fits in here. I think everybody got that chip on our shoulder on our roster, in our organization. But he’s coming into his own. He will continue to grow. I said it earlier in the year: Miami is going to love him. They are going to fall in love with him. I know that they are, and I know that they have. He’s key to us going forward for a lot of years to come.”

Head coach Erik Spoelsta was similarly complimentary.

“I know like everybody is looking for that signature moment,” he said.

“That would be such a great story, right: ‘I knew that day he would be this guy.’ I think everybody overestimates what you can do in a day and what you can do in months of work and sweat and grind when nobody is watching. He is relentless with his work ethic.

“Nobody was paying attention to us during the year. He had a lot of tough moments. He did. He had some moments where it was up and down and learning about our demands on defense,” he continued.

“But he is a worker, and he shows up the next day trying to get better every single day, and usually those incremental improvements every single day, and he earns the trust — I think it’s more important earning the trust of his teammates than the coaching staff, but it’s that daily grind when nobody is watching and doing it when most people don’t.”

Herro, for his part, seemed unfazed by everything that transpired. The moment was not too big for him.

“I’m just going to bet on myself,” he said after the game.

“I’ve been doing that my whole life. I went from a small town in Milwaukee to Kentucky, and nobody thought I would survive there, and nobody thought I would survive here. At the end of the day, it’s just betting on myself.”

Game 5 between the Heat and Celtics is scheduled for Friday. If Miami wins, the franchise will find itself back in the NBA Finals for the first time since 2014.
