Key Highlights from Miami Heat’s Victory Against Utah Jazz

January 2, 2023

To put it mildly, Tyler Herro is experiencing a phenomenal season.

On Saturday night, he finished off a year in which he made multiple clutch shots with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer over two Utah Jazz defenders. He scored 29 points, saving the Heat from a second straight defeat.

Here are a few key highlights from the game:

Herro is, without a doubt, the Heat’s go-to player when they need a big basket. He has developed into one of the league’s best clutch players.

Erik Spoelstra, the coach of the Miami Heat, stated, “You want the ball in his hands because you know he likes those moments.”

Although Bam Adebayo was the engine, Herro iced the game. He averaged 18 points in the second half and finished with 32 points and eight rebounds.

Max Strus and Haywood Highsmith came in for Jimmy Butler and Caleb Martin, who were both sidelined due to injuries to their knees and their quads, respectively. Highsmith scored just six points, but Strus finished with 13 points, two rebounds, six assists, and two steals.

His greatest performance of the year went to Victor Oladipo. With a season-high 23 points, he led the bench. He made four 3-pointers while shooting 46 percent from the field.

“I must remember that my road and my journey are different from many people’s (journeys) and just keep being patient with myself,” Oladipo added. I’ll soon be in the proper location.

Duncan Robinson struggled to rediscover his shooting rhythm only one night after overtaking Tim Hardaway as the franchise’s all-time leader in made 3-pointers. He just made one of his five 3-point attempts and had a 20 percent 3-point shooting percentage. He scored nine points in total.
