Miami Heat ranger Tyler Herro was too busy celebrating to consider he might not be a fit for the moment.
Sacramento Kings coach Mike Brown was not.
So, while Heat stepped into the night, reveling in Herro’s 3-point basket 2.5 seconds left, giving them a Wednesday 110-107 win at FTX Arena, Brown took his complaints to the post-match podium podium, emphasizing that the teams there should still be a game.
“Tyler Herro is a great player,” said Brown. “But in the end he left. He went to the last play and I wouldn’t be doing my job if I hadn’t come here to protect my boyfriends. My guys fought them for close to 48 minutes and pumping false steps to the side, falling or jumping up and then one-two and a shot and not making that call is just unbelievable for me.
“That’s not why we lost the match, although I don’t think we got a fair whistle. And I hope when officials come back and look at the game they can see it.
The NBA in its official report on the last two minutes of the match confirmed on Thursday that Brown was indeed correct in his interpretation and that Herro should be summoned to travel, giving the Kings a 2.5 second draw per game.
According to the official league report, “Herro (MIA) ends up dribbling by gathering in the air and landing on both feet (although his left foot lands slightly ahead of his right). When he moves his right leg, his left leg becomes a pivot leg, which he then lifts and places on the floor before performing a jump shot. “
The report did not alter the score of the game, nor was the game eligible for in-game review as per the coach’s provocation league guidelines.
For his part, Herro did not see his mock pump, the dual-clutch attempt against Terence Davis through this prism. But he also didn’t think about it until he was asked in a post-match interview.
First he gave his view of coach Erik Spoelstra’s half-time shot, a move that could also have involved a Bam Adebayo pass.
“Spo really just set up the game to get the ball out into space, whether it was my shot or creating, att*cking and creating for someone else. I could shoot it, or go to the hoop, or throw it on Bam or someone on the weak side for three. But fortunately it did.
Then he was told about Brown’s comments.
“I don’t think this is a trip,” Herro said with a laugh as Heat prepared to move to Friday’s game against Indiana Pacers at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. “But at the beginning of the game, they called me a journey that I also didn’t think was a journey. I think I hit a mid-range pull like a moment ago and they named the trip.
“As [Tuesday] a night with Jordan Poole, any play could be continued. I’m pretty sure you can name the trip in almost any show. So you gotta take it in the chin.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr disagreed with Poole’s three dribbling breaks in Tuesday’s Golden State 116-109 defeat at Heat, it was nothing like Kings’ Brown’s protracted anger.
“They’re all great guys and good officials,” said Brown. “But at the end of the day, we have to earn our respect. Because right now people get into the hype, crowd and excitement of the crowd and look at what’s on our T-shirt, I assume, and they see “Kings” and maybe expect us to lose. I do not know.”
Brown was also disappointed with the lack of a call involving Sacramento forward Harrison Barnes.
“It’s only two kind of blatant phone calls right in front of the guys,” Brown said of officials. “I felt bad for my players.
“We lost again. I have to admit it. But when you have a fighting team, both teams, both teams are fighting as hard as they fought back and forth on the stretch of the game and you won’t make the right choice? It’s right in front of you and just say, “I haven’t seen it.” This is difficult.”
The league referee report did not contain any refereeing errors regarding Barnes in the last two minutes of the game, and Herro’s journey was the only game listed as invalid at the time.
According to the confirmed views of the Kings, Herro made way too much room in the game, they said he took two steps, stopped jumping, brought the ball down, took two more steps and converted a shot listed as shot from 27 feet to close. lost his 26 point night.
“If that’s not a journey,” said Brown, “I don’t know what the definition of travel is.
“Maybe it’s the Miami Heat, and we’re Sacramento Kings, and this is Tyler Herro, and this is the last second shot, no way out. Maybe they are caught? I do not know. I’m not a judge by any means and their work is hard as hell. But it’s an izo, one-on-one situation and you’re looking at the ball.
Herro said that the mechanics of such a complex att*ck have already been well calculated.
“I fired the same shot, actually twice in the game,” he said, “where I was pumping, he faked it, and I reloaded. I missed, but I can take a shot. I am working on many different shots. So I think I can take a lot of different shots. “
Herro said when the defender of teammate Gabe Vincent hit the line the chances of a draw or free-kick were reduced.
“When I saw it,” he said, “then I backed up.” And I could probably back out. But with this space I just wanted to test the fence and see if it would jump which he did. And if he jumped on me, I could foul. Or if it jumped, I could do what I did, reload and flip it over.
Or, as Brown argued, he could travel.
“It’s a pity,” said Brown, “the game was named as it was.
“I just don’t know how. I am stunned.
