Tyler Herro posted a team-worst minus-35 in Game 1 on Wednesday, ending with 14 points on 6-of-18 shooting, four rebounds and three assists.
Herro struggled shooting the ball and was targeted by LeBron James on the defensive end, leading to that ugly plus-minus stat. Herro started for an injured Goran Dragic in the second half, but there is only so much that can be asked of a rookie in the NBA Finals. With Dragic likely to miss more time, Herro will find himself as the team's primary ball handler going forward. His performance in the prior two series have been a great storyline, but he is now facing the biggest challenge of his young career by far.
