The Celtics have cooled off the Heat on the court, taking the last two games of the Eastern Conference finals to narrow the series to 3–2 heading into Game 6.

However, at least one Miami player remains at a steady boil. That would be guard Tyler Herro, who has been sidelined since breaking his hand in Game 1 of the Heat's first-round series against the Bucks on April 16.

Herro took to his Instagram story to respond to a dig from TNT color commentator Stan Van Gundy. Van Gundy had quipped, “You know the No. 1 reason the Heat need Tyler Herro back? Because his fashion is so bad on the bench. We need him in uniform.”

A SportsCenter post displayed the quote with Herro in a purple bucket hat and black jacket on the Miami bench.

“My ‘fashion’ as bad as he was on the sideline,” Herro shot back, complete with a laughing emoji.

Van Gundy has coached four teams over an 18-year coaching career and was most recently with the Pelicans in 2021—Herro’s second year in the league. He has a career record of 554–425.

The Heat, still Herro-less, will try to avert becoming the fourth NBA team to play a Game 7 after leading a series 3–0 when they take the court for Game 6 on Saturday evening against Boston.
