Final Score: Miami 103, Indiana 102 (OT)
Miami, FL (Sports Network) - LeBron James one-upped Paul George in the final seconds of overtime, beating the Pacers All-Star for a left-handed layup just before the buzzer to give the Miami Heat a thrilling 103-102 victory over Indiana in the opener of the Eastern Conference finals. George sent Game 1 into overtime with a stunning 3-pointer at the end of regulation, then gave the Pacers a 102-101 lead with three free throws after a questionable foul call with 2.2 seconds left in the extra session. George overplayed the inbounds pass at the top of the key, and James never hesitated attacking the basket as he blew by his defender for the game-winner to cap his sensational 30-point, 10-rebound, 10-assist performance -- the ninth triple- double of his stellar career. Game 2 is set for Friday night in Miami Chris Andersen played a critical role off the Heat's bench, connecting on a perfect 7-of-7 from the floor for 16 points, while Chris Bosh added 17 points, including a clutch three-point play in OT with the defending champs down by three. George scored 27 points, David West followed with 26 and Roy Hibbert netted 19 with nine rebounds, though the 7-foot-2 center was not on the court for either of James' buckets in OT.
