Arab News - - Sport News -

Ris­ing star Tyler Herro scored a ca­reer high 37 points and Jimmy But­ler chipped in 24 as the Mi­ami Heat seized com­mand of their East­ern Con­fer­ence fi­nal se­ries with a 112-109 win on Wed­nes­day.

The 20-year-old rookie Herro made five of 10 threes as Mi­ami took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven se­ries in the NBA’s quar­an­tine bub­ble in Or­lando, Florida. “It is a good win for us. I feel good we are up 3-1 but we still have a lot of work to do,” Herro said. “We put a lot of ef­fort into pre­par­ing for game four and we got it done.”

Herro’s point to­tal is the sec­ond most in a play­off game for a player 20 or younger, be­hind only Magic John­son who had 42.
