Arizona in the NBA Playoffs: Andre Iguodala limited as Heat fall to Celtics in Game 3 of Eastern Conference Finals

NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Miami Heat Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Andre Iguodala played through a back injury, but the Miami Heat lost to the Boston Celtics 117-106 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday.

Miami still holds a 2-1 series lead, needing just two more wins to advance to the NBA Finals.

Iguodala played just seven minutes (none in the second half), logging two rebounds and missing his lone field-goal attempt, a 3-pointer from the wing.

The Celtics led wire-to-wire, carrying a 17-point lead into the fourth quarter. Former Cal standout Jaylen Brown led Boston with 26 points on 11-of-17 shooting.

The Heat were led by 27 points and 16 rebounds from former Kentucky big man Bam Adebayo.

Former Arizona Wildcats star Solomon Hill still hasn’t made his playoff debut for the Heat.

What’s next?

Game 4 is not until Wednesday, Sept. 23. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. MST on ESPN.
