LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — When the NBA was shut down for a few months because of the coronavirus pandemic, Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro was in a gym all the time. Given the way he’s played since the season resumed, the Heat probably could have suspected he used his downtime wisely. No rookie in these playoffs is averaging more points, 3-pointers, assists and minutes per game than Herro. And the baby-faced 20-year-old who starred for the Kentucky Wildcats will make his Eastern Conference finals debut when Miami opens its series against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.
