The Miami Heat will have to wait at least one more game to reach the NBA Finals. They fell to the Celtics 121-108 in Game 5 on Friday as Boston cut its series deficit to 3-2.
The Celtics outscored the Heat by 20 in the second half.
Andre Iguodala and Solomon Hill both played for Miami but didn’t have much to show for in. In 19 minutes, Iguodala had two points, four rebounds two blocks and an assist. He also picked up a technical foul for this hit above the shoulder:

Hill had three rebounds and two assists in seven minutes, only his second time appearing for the Heat this postseason.
This was a nice dime, though:

36 year old Andre Iguodala took 30 year old Gordon Hayward off the dribble to the basket and scored quite easily on a layup.— VADO (@vadorant) September 26, 2020
Andre Iguodala has got to be more productive coming off the bench. I understand he's not a scorer, but defensively he needs to active. Hopefully Miami can close the series in game 6— Cifer04 (@shan_yuga) September 26, 2020

Biggest mistake was talking Solomon Hill out of the game— kawhi’s draft tweets (@SaadUrkel2) September 26, 2020
It's so weird to me that Andre iguodala is a defense only type of player. He used to be one of the best scoring guards in the league— aTROLLwithBlades (@TROLLwithBlades) September 26, 2020
