Netease Sports reported on September 28:
On September 28, Beijing time, the Heat beat the Celtics 125-113 at home and advanced to the finals with a big score of 4-2. 20-year-old rookie Taylor-
Herro is one of the hottest stars in this year’s playoffs.
But this obviously did not hit Herro's confidence, and his state today quickly ushered in a rebound. After being put on the court in the first quarter, he soon confidently hit a step-back jumper and assisted Robinson and Dragic to hit three-pointers, which quickly opened up the close score.
The Greens caught up in the second quarter, and although Herro missed a three-pointer at 8 minutes and 47 seconds, he was also actively looking for teammates to help Adebayor and Butler open the situation in the interior. When Robinson returned, Herro also passed the ball in time to help him continue to soar into three points. Herro only scored 2 points in the second quarter, but sent 4 assists.
Although the Heat have maintained their lead in the third quarter, the Greens have started to chase points at the end of the quarter, and the Heat hit a wave of 10-2 at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
But the Heat quickly responded. After the Greens missed three-pointers in a row, Herro finally broke the deadlock for the Heat, hit a three-pointer at 8 minutes and 11 seconds, and then scored a mid-range draw to equalize the score. Adebayor also broke out in a timely manner in the interior, immediately causing the Green Army's defense to mess up.
In the last 5 minutes, Robinson continued to soar for three points. Herro also scored a fast-break counterattack at 4:31 seconds, and then broke through again. The Heat sent the game into garbage time. Hero took this quarter. With 11 points, he became the second-highest rookie in the fourth quarter of the playoffs in the past 20 years. The record holder is Daniel Gibson (19 points) in 2007.
