Guard Tyler Herro on the struggles of playing without Jimmy Butler: “I think we struggled a little bit offensively tonight as a team, just sharing the ball. I think we got away from what led to that win streak. We just have to get back to it. It’s not going to be perfect every night. Just have to stick with what got us in this position and we’ll be fine.”
