Tyrese Haliburton PG vs. Tyler Herro PG


Tyrese Haliburton of the Indiana Pacers has had an exceptional year. Averaging 27 points and leading his team with 11.8 assists per game, Haliburton plays 33.9 minutes each game while leading in scoring average and assist count per contest. His vision and playmaking play an essential part in their high scoring offense; yet with 2.5 turnovers per game as well as his defensive stats showing vulnerabilities where Miami may exploit.


Tyler Herro, the key guard for the Heat, averages 22.9 points and 4.6 assists over 34 minutes per game – both as scorer and facilitator of plays – making him a dynamic duo with Haliburton in terms of offensive production and defense contributions; with an average turnover rate and low shot-blocking ability against an aggressive Pacers offense. Unfortunately though, turnovers still pose a problem and his lack of shot-blocking may become problematic when facing off against such aggressive rivalry as found with Haliburton in Haliburton’s.


Haliburton and Herro will provide two very dynamic performances – Haliburton will use his playmaking ability while Herro brings scorers and defensive prowess that could define both tempo and outcome of this contest. Their actions could determine its course.
