Tyler Herro is a smart rookie, smart enough to realize he's about to get picked on again.
With the Indiana Pacers having made clear that the intention against the Miami Heat's switching defense is to create perceived defensive mismatches, Herro expects Monday's Game 4 to be similar in at least one respect to the first three games taken by the Heat.
"I mean it's no secret who they're going at," Herro said after Sunday's optional practice at Disney World. "They're going at me and Duncan [Robinson]. It's no secret about it. I think everybody sees it.
"But that's just something that I'm not going to run from it. They keep continuing to go at me; I'm going to continue to do my job and try my best and my teammates and coaches have trusted me. And I'm going to continue work at it. But, like I said, it's nothing that I'm going to shy away from, or it's no secret."
