Twitter users all over reacted to Herb's amazing performance in Game 4. Specifically his shot-blocking ability.

 

This breakdown of Herb Jones on just this one defensive play is mindblowing. It was a really smart play!

 

It's safe to say Herb can cover almost anything!

Skip Bayless even weighed in on the Former Alabama basketball player.

 

During game 4, Chris Paul went to help Herb off the floor and Herb straight-up ignored him! Is it wrong to say that I support it? It's a heated series. I'd rather take help from my teammates as well.

 

No matter the results of this playoff run, it's safe to say Herb Jones is the next big thing in New Orleans.
