Imagine that—LeBron James winding up with the day's best dunk.

The Miami Heat superstar may have come up with Sunday's best highlight, but his team came up empty. The Heat lost Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Indiana Pacers by a final score of 107-96. All five Pacers started scored at least 15 points in a balanced effort.

The Heat relied primarily on James and Dwyane Wade, who finished with 25 and 27, respectively.
