Heat Warden Tyler Herro on Caleb Martin: “Caleb is just Caleb. He’s so dynamic, especially in the fours. He’s really a two or three, but he plays the four. To be able to get him there and be a trigger guy for us and be able to attack from tight rounds it’s hard to keep him in the lead. Now he shoots the three pretty well. He only makes plays for us.
