The 迈阿密热火 have started its season strong after its third win in its first four games of the 2019-2020 season. Miami handily defeated the 亚特兰大老鹰 112-97 Tuesday night in downtown Miami behind performances from 泰勒赫罗 and 吉米·巴特勒.
One of the most significant moves of the offseason came when small forward 吉米·巴特勒 was traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the 热 in a four-team deal back in June. His debut for Miami has been highly anticipated. He missed the first three games of the season due to the birth of his daughter.

In his debut, Butler finished with 21 points on five for 11 shooting to go along with his five rebounds and three steals. However, the leading scorer for the 热 was not the coveted wing player.
赫罗, the 13th overall pick in the 2019 draft, led the 热 in scoring Tuesday. He logged 29 points (including a 19-point second quarter). The shooting guard out of Kentucky made his presence known from distance as well. He knocked down three of his four attempts from the three-point line.

Even though the rookie played in just the fourth game of his career, he has already put himself in elite company. 赫罗 is only the second rookie since Dwayne Wade to score 29 points for the 热 in the team’s history.
Atlanta’s Painful Night
Besides the loss itself, the Hawks lost its young star for an unknown period of time. Point guard TRAE年轻 came down awkward on his right ankle in the second quarter and led people to assume the worst as the second-year player writhed in pain on the hardwood.
Prayers up to TRAE年轻 who went down with an apparent ankle injury. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/6BLEFO2v0u
