Miami Heat rookie Tyler Herro looking like 'idol' Devin Booker in NBA playoffs

Tyler Herro has often said he patterns his game after his fellow University of Kentucky brother, Devin Booker.

Both 6-5.

Flawless shooting release.

Certified bucket getters.

"He's always been a mentor, like an idol to me," said Herro about Booker in an NBATV feature that aired two months ago.

The rookie caught fire like the player he idolizes in scoring a career-high 37 points in Miami's 112-109 win over Boston in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.

"Once you see a couple of shots go down, and when you're getting shots in rhythm, the game flows," said Herro, after Wednesday's win as the Heat took a 3-1 series lead.
