Thursday afternoon, game two in the Orlando bubble Robinson validated the fact he was deserving of the opportunity after being undrafted in the 2018 draft. He noted 24 points were going insane for 7-of-8 from the three-point line. The young forward boosted the heat in a 109-100 victory against the Pacers. Miami now leads the series 2-0 in the first stretch of Eastern Conference playoffs.
Robinson not only helped Miami win but set the Heat’s single-season record for three-pointers made. The impressive sharpshooter bounced back after only making six points on 2 for 8 of shooting in the first contest.
Robinson was part of five players that ended with double digits. Miami’s Guard Goran Dragic finished with 20 points and six assists. The Heats star Forward Jimmy Butler ended the game with 18 points while the Rookie Tyler Herro finished with 15 and forward Jae Crowder marked 10.
The Rookie Herro had his second straight strong game. Herro ended game one with 15 points in his playoff debut. On Thursday, Herro added to score by making another 15 buckets.
The Heat expanded their lead in the series even though the center and most improved player candidate Bam Adebayo, ended with seven points only. Game 3 is Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Miami seems they are on their way to blowing out the Pacers.
