Twitter Reacts to LeBron James' Game 1 Triple-Double, Game Winner

LeBron James put in two go-ahead shots for the Miami Heat in Game 1 against the Indiana Pacers, the second one dropping in at the buzzer and giving the Heat the 103-102 win, sending Twitter into a frenzy.

In all, LeBron finished up with 30 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, three blocks and one buzzer-beater to start off the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday night.

As Dwyane Wade fouled Paul George on a three-pointer attempt with just over two seconds to go in overtime, it seemed as if the Pacers had the game in hand.

George hit all three freebies to put the Pacers up by a point, and the visitors just needed one final stop to nab home-court advantage away from the Heat.

Of course, 2.2 seconds is always too much time when you've got a guy like LeBron James on the court. Heat fans should know to stay in their seats.

LeBron got the ball at the top of the key, just barely got the corner on George, and...well you know the rest.

Of course, the biggest issue that almost everybody on the planet knows is that a particular gigantic man who plays tremendous defense wasn't on the court to protect the rim.

Of course, always the team player, LeBron spread the credit around in the postgame interview.

Regardless of who won the game, there's one thing that's obvious after such a game: basketball is super fun.

Hopefully we can get six more games exactly like this one, Indiana getting the upper-hand in a few and the Heat getting the upper-hand in a few.

These two teams know how to put on a show, and that LeBron James character is certainly good at basketball.
