Pacers even series with Heat behind Hibbert

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Roy Hibbert had 23 points and 12 rebounds, Lance Stephenson added 20 points, and the Indiana Pacers charged back late to beat the Miami Heat 99-92 on Tuesday night and tie the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2.

LeBron James led the Heat with 24 points before fouling out with 56 seconds to go. Mario Chalmers had 20 points on a night the defending NBA champs failed to take command of the series.

They will host Game 5 on Thursday.

The Pacers started fast and spent the rest of the night trying to fend off Miami's continual comebacks.

But with Indiana leading 81-72 early in the fourth, Miami answered with a 14-2 run that gave the Heat an 86-83 lead.

Indiana tied the score on Paul George's three-point play and erased the Miami lead by closing the game on a 16-6 run.
