Miami is moving on.
The Heat downed the Indiana Pacers 99-87 on Monday to complete the four-game sweep.
Andre Iguodala scored all five of his points in the fourth quarter Monday, helping the Heat stave off a desperate Pacers team.
The 36-year-old sank a 3 to give Miami an 89-79 lead with 4:59 left in the fourth. He then sank two free throws with 14.2 seconds left that were the final points of the game.
Iguodala also had five rebounds, four steals and a block, as he continues to get it done on both ends in Miami’s closing unit.
Solomon Hill did not appear for the Heat for the fourth straight game. Pacers guard T.J. McConnell got his first DNP of the series. The former Arizona guard averaged 2.3 points, 2.3 assists and 2.0 assists in the first three games.
The Heat will take on the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in the second round so long as Milwaukee does not blow its 3-1 lead over the Aaron Gordon-less Orlando Magic.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Stanley Johnson and the Toronto Raptors will begin a best-of-seven series with the Boston Celtics on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. MST on ESPN. The Raptors and Celtics swept the Nets and Sixers in the first round, respectively.

Also a pretty damn absurd pass from Andre Iguodala but still got upstaged by this Herro finish. https://t.co/T0iriqmZyB— Shervon Fakhimi (@ShervonFakhimi) August 25, 2020

Anyone that thinks the Heat don’t have a shot against the Bucks just haven’t watched us enough. Any given possession we can throw Iguodala, Crowder, DJJ, Bam or Jimmy on Giannis. He’s gonna get his, but we’re gonna make it damn tough. #HEATTwitter— Tim Koskuba (@TKoskuba) August 25, 2020
