James layup lifts Heat in Game 1

Thursday, 23 May 2013 08:04 Published in Sports

MIAMI (AP) — It was an MVP performance by the NBA's top player.

LeBron James hit a layup as time expired in overtime to lift the Miami Heat past the Indiana Pacers 103-102 in Game 1 of the NBA's Eastern Conference finals. The Heat led 101-99 until Paul George hit three free throws with 2.2 remaining in overtime. James bailed out the Heat by driving down the left side of the lane and providing the game's 17th and final lead change.

James finished with his ninth postseason triple-double, delivering 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. The Heat also received solid production from Chris Anderson, who came off the bench and added 16 points on 7-of-7 shooting. Dwyane (dwayn) Wade chipped in 19 points, six rebounds and five assists before fouling out.

The Pacers' starting forwards accounted for 72 points. George was high man for the Pacers with 27 points, David West finished with 26 and Roy Hibbert had 19 and nine rebounds.

Game 2 is Friday at Miami.

Dozens of protesters demonstrated outside St. Louis city police headquarters Wednesday, determined to continue pressuring for an investigation into the shooting death of a St. Louis man. 

The anguish of a grandmother as a family seeks answers regarding the shooting death of Carey Ball, Jr. killed last month by St. Louis city police during a traffic stop. Family and friends depict a young man who was getting his life on track, an honor student at Forest Park. Police say he pointed a weapon and they opened fire.

Ball's father says his son did have a gun, but had thrown it down and was surrendering to police when he was shot. Carey Ball, Sr. says they don't want a pity party, just a thorough investigation.
