LeBron James made two layups in the final 10.8 seconds to lift the Heat to a 103-102 overtime victory over the Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

James caught an inbounds pass at the very top of the key with the Miami Heat down 102-101 and bounded past would-be hero Paul George for an uncontested layup as time expired in OT.

George hit a 3-pointer to force overtime and made 3 free throws with 2.2 seconds left in the extra session after being fouled by Dwyane Wade.

George scored 18 of his team-high 27 points in the 4th quarter and overtime in a whistle-happy game marred by 58 personal fouls and 38 turnovers.

George caught the Heat switching on a screen and made a desperation 25-footer over James with 0.7 seconds left to tie the game and force OT.

James had his 9th career postseason triple-double with 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. David West added 26 points for the Indiana Pacers.

With 42 seconds left in regulation, the Miami Heat seemed to have Game 1 locked up when Dwyane Wade broke an 89-89 tie with a lefty layup over Roy HIbbert.

The Pacers’ next possession ended with a turnover on a George pass into the Indiana bench with 20 seconds left.

Indiana fouled the normally reliable Ray Allen — an 89.4 percent career foul shooter — who gave the Pacers hope by only missing his first of 2 free throws.

George redeemed himself with the long 3 from the left wing with 0.7 seconds left. James ran at George, but didn’t leave his feet to contest the shot. NFL betting lines

Allen then missed a corner 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to overtime.

The Miami Heat turned up the intensity to start the 2nd half with a 12-2 run but trailed 65-64 after 3 quarters. James had 5 points in the streak, victimizing George.

Midway through third quarter, James jammed the middle finger on his right hand when he struck the backboard attempting to block a Hibbert putback.

James played through the injury however, and Indiana ended the quarter with their 2 key big men – Hibbert and West – laden with 4 fouls apiece. Tyler Hansbrough scored 8 points and 4 rebounds in 3rd quarter, giving the Pacers a needed lift.

The Indiana Pacers led 42-37 at halftime, holding Miami to their lowest first-half offensive output of the 2013 playoffs. The Heat had just 2 fast-break points, turned the ball over 13 times and were outrebounded 19-12.

Hibbert, Indiana’s 7-2 center was not quite as effective but solid with 11 points and 4 rebounds. Bigger than his numbers, though, was his ability to get Miami in foul trouble.

With 1:10 left in the 1st quarter, James was whistled for his 2nd foul for throwing an elbow while driving to the ring. It was only the 3rd time all season that James was called for 2 fouls in the first quarter. The last time it happened was in December.
