LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Tyler Herro — still just 20 years old — scored a Heat rookie-record 37 points, Jimmy Butler had 24 and Miami beat the Boston Celtics 112-109 on Wednesday night in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Goran Dragic added 22 and Bam Adebayo had 20 points and 12 rebounds to help the Heat take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

They can close it out Friday night in Game 5.. Jayson Tatum scored all 28 of his points in the second half for the Celtics.

Herro graduated from Whitnall in 2018, where he would go on to play for the University of Kentucky before being drafted by the Heat.
