Pacers' Paul George forces overtime in Game 1 with deep three-pointer against Heat

Pacers forward Paul George forced overtime in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Heat with a deep three-pointer.

Indiana inbounded the ball with 11 seconds remaining and nearly committed a turnover when George picked up his dribble at the top of the key and almost threw the ball out of bounds. David West saved the possession and handed the ball back to George with just three seconds remaining. With no other available option, George pulled up from well outside the three-point line and swished home a 30-footer with 0.7 seconds remaining in regulation.

The bucket tied the score at 92. The two teams went to overtime when Miami was unable to convert on the other end.

In overtime, LeBron James delivered a buzzer-beating game-winner, driving past George for the winning hoop in Miami's 103-102 win.

James finished with 30 points (on 12-for-24 shooting), 10 rebounds and 10 assists in 47 minutes to best a sensational performance from George, who finished with a team-high 27 points (on seven-for-16 shooting), five assists and four rebounds.
