Trailing the Heat with a single digit lead at the end of the first half, the Pacers tried to pull away but the spirited Heat led by Mario Chalmers, Chris Bosh and LeBron James turned the table on the Pacers with the Heat pulling away to six points lead with more than seven minutes to go in the third quarter.
But the Pacers were unperturbed and quickly recoup with a series of conversions that put them back at seven points on top at the end of the third quarter.
Early in the fourth quarter, the Pacers played so well with each one contributing to bring their lead to almost double digit.
Triggered by a three point shot by Ray Allen with 5 minutes left into the 4th quarter, the Heat took the lead once more in the last quarter but a three point shot by Lance Stephenson prevented Heat's attempt to pile up points in the final stretch.
Less than a minute before the end game, Heat's star player LeBron James was slapped with an offensive foul which saw him leaving the court with his sixth foul of the game.
LeBron's exit from the court with less than a minute left assured the Pacers victory in game four of the series.
This was followed by Dwayne wade's travelling call less than 20 seconds with Indiana up by four at 96-92.
Before the game, writes: "An Indiana win, it's anybody's series. A loss, Miami basically has it in the bag."
Now it's anybody's series.
Final score is 99-92.
