Tyler Herro matched the Miami record with 10 3-pointers and scored a career-high 41 points to help the Heat beat the Houston Rockets 111-108 on Thursday night.
A night after making nine 3-pointers and scoring 35 points in a victory at Oklahoma City, Herro became the fourth Heat player to hit 10 3s in a game, a feat most recently accomplished by Duncan Robinson on Dec. 10, 2019.
“I didn't know it was the record until last night when I hit nine, and they said I was one short,” Herro said. “I didn't have any intention of coming in to tie the record, but I was just trying to get 3s up. I think shooting more 3s is helping.”
Herro was 10-of-15 from 3-point range and 13-of-20 overall. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, he joined Stephen Curry and James Harden as the only players in NBA history to make at least nine 3-pointers in consecutive games, and he is the only one to do it on consecutive days.
