Miami Heat take Game One in overtime 103-102 over the Indiana Pacers. The Eastern Conference Finals are off to a roaring start.

LeBron's game winner was just the capstone on a miraculous night of clutch shots and competitive basketball. The game was close the entire way with some up-and-down play throughout. Forcing overtime came down to Paul George making a couple of clutch shots, including a game-tying 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left in regulation.

This looked like the Paul George game for a long time as he had that shot plus a drawn foul on a 3-pointer with 2.2 seconds left in overtime. He calmly sank all three free throws to give the Pacers a one-point lead.

Of course, it is hard to ignore the mastery of one LeBron James. He scored his team's final five points and gave the Heat a two-point lead when he made a layup over a fouling (not called) Paul George.

George overplayed on the final inbounds and James did what MVPs do.

It is 1-0 Miami. Indiana gets its next crack on Friday night in Miami.
