Tyler Herro was not thinking about earning a share of franchise history after another sensational display in the Miami Heat's 111-108 victory over the Houston Rockets.

A day after draining nine three-pointers against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Herro went one better against the Rockets on Thursday.

In doing so, Herro became just the fourth Heat player to land 10 threes in a game, the last to do so being Duncan Robinson in 2019.

Herro is only the third player to shoot at least nine threes in consecutive games, alongside Steph Curry and James Harden, and is the first to do it on back-to-back days.

"I didn't know it was the record until last night when I hit nine, and they said I was one short," Herro said.

"I didn't have any intention of coming in to tie the record, but I was just trying to get threes up. I think shooting more threes is helping."

Herro's tally of 41 was a career high, with 25 of those coming in the first half.

Aged 22 years and 329 days, Herro surpasses Dwayne Wade as the youngest Heat player to put up a 40-point game, while he is the first Miami star since LeBron James in 2014 to have at least 35 in consecutive outings.

Asked about Herro's threes heroics, head coach Erik Spoelstra said: "The last couple of games, that's been really the scheme against him. That's been open.

"But regardless, he's too good of a shooter for us to not take threes off the catch. He has to continue to be assertive in those opportunities.

"He's just a brilliant shooter. He can do it off the dribble and off the catch."

The Heat have won three straight games and sit eighth in the Eastern Conference with a 15-15 record.
