The Indiana Pacers narrowly beat Miami Heat 99-92 meaning the best-of-seven series is tied at 2-2.

Game four of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals was decided by Roy Hibbert's 23 points and 12 rebounds.

Miami Heat's LeBron James fouled out with 56 seconds remaining, ultimately handing the victory to the Pacers, when the scores were only separated by two points.

The Pacers will now go to Miami for game five on Thursday as the best-of-seven series reaches its climax.

Indiana Pacers took the game by storm in the early stages scoring the first 11 points and were leading for the majority of the night. 

But Miami Heat fought back with the lead changing hands 10 times throughout the match.

Heat's star man LeBron James was, by his standards, relatively quiet scoring 24 points before fouling out.

This is the second time Miami Heat have been pegged back in this best-of-seven series and the pressure has now shifted back onto them.

Roy Hibbert, the star of the match, insists that the Pacers will continue to cause Miami Heat problems in the Eastern Finals.

"We're never going to give up. We're relentless," Hibbert told ESPN.

"All those guys in there, they believe we can win. No matter what all the analysts or whoever says anything, they count us out, those guys in the locker room were ready to play and we went out and played our hearts out."

The Heat now face a must-win match in Game five in Miami on Thursday or else they will face a trip to Indiana fighting for their play-off lives.
