Miami’s Bam Adebayo had a sensational block to deny Jayson Tatum of the game-tying dunk in the final seconds. That was right after Jimmy Butler drove for a three-point play to give the Heat the lead for good.

Former Arizona Wildcat Andre Iguodala had three points, a block, a steal, an assist and a rebound in 15 minutes off the bench. His only field goal was a corner 3 that cut Boston’s lead to 36-31 in the second quarter.
Iguodala has spent much of the playoffs in Miami’s closing unit, but hardly played in the fourth quarter and overtime this time, though he was on the court for Boston’s final possession.
Fellow Wildcat Solomon Hill still has yet to make his playoff debut.

It shows you how important it is to have an Iguodala on your team. I know he taught them a lot on defense

I swear Solomon Hill won the best seat in the house sweepstakes. Congrats to him.
