Considering how things have transpired, the Miami Heat are on the losing end in the NBA Finals. Tailing a 3-1 deficit, the odds don’t look in their favor. However, seeing the Denver Nuggets overcome this deficit twice in this postseason makes it look much easier.

As far as the rookie Tyler Herro is concerned, he has proved to be one of the most consistent players for the Heat so far. He is the only player on the team who has managed to score in double digits every single game in the postseason so far.

And that’s not all! It seems like Herro has a penchant for breaking records left and right. In a proud moment for the Heat, their rookie has set yet another record while playing in the NBA Finals.

Miami Heat rookie with his incredible three-point shooting

According to the NBA, Tyler has forged his name into the history books once again by recording the most three-pointers made by a rookie in playoff history. He has a total of 45 three-pointers under his belt at the moment, and we still have Game 5 in hand.

He has bested the likes of Matt Maloney, who held the record previously at 43 three-pointers; Michael Porter Jr. at 34, Manu Ginobili at 28, and Daniel Gibson at 27 completed the Top-5 of this coveted list of stars.

He scored 37 points in total, which was the most a rookie has ever scored off the bench in the Playoffs. That’s exactly what the Heat need at this point against the Lakers.

It’s quite possible that their setback was a result of the injuries they endured in Game 1; however, the time for playing the blame game has passed. What they require right now are more heroic efforts from key players like Jimmy Butler.
