The Miami Heat are looking to take over this Eastern Conference Finals series against the Indiana Pacers and Chris Bosh’s hot first quarter has given them the boost they need. But while the Heat have gotten off to a fast start, the stars for the Pacers are doing their best to catch their breath and keep up.

Paul George is the leader of the Pacers and so far he’s turned in some pretty sweet plays and has kept his team somewhat in this game against the Heat. One of those plays came when George crossed over Ray Allen to not only look cool but to also nail a jumper that kept air in the Pacers lungs — for now.

The Pacers will need more than slick plays to get past the Heat as they’ll need to play intelligent basketball as well. While Indiana has star power, the Heat match them and surpass them on that front. They also happen to be an incredibly smart team as well, and that’s something that LeBron James pointed out in a recent interview.

George may look slick with this basket, but his team is still losing and at the end of the day that’s the only thing we’ll remember.
