Tyler Herro went viral for a snarl he made after making a big bucket in Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. on Sunday night.
Herro drove to the basket and made a difficult layup off the glass to put his Miami Heat up 111-102 over the Los Angeles Lakers with 58.6 seconds left. He even got a foul call and converted his free throw.
Right after the difficult shot, Herro made a snarl that went viral.
We now know exactly what Herro’s game face looks like.
“Just in the heat of the moment,” Herro said of his snarl in a postgame interview.
Herro wasn’t about to celebrate the win. Instead, he said his team needs to focus on winning.
The Heat are down 2-1 in the Finals even after their 115-104 win.
Maybe this will help Herro earn his nickname from Paul Pierce.
