Roy Hibbert collected 23 points and 12 rebounds, Lance Stephenson added 20 points, and the Indiana Pacers charged back late in Indianapolis to beat the Miami Heat, 99-92, on Tuesday night and tie the Eastern Conference finals at two games apiece.
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 champions failed to take command of the series.
The Heat will host Game 5 on Thursday.
Suns hire Hornacek
Phoenix hired Jeff Hornacek, 50, who played the first six of his 14 NBA seasons with the Suns.
Hornacek was traded to the 76ers in the Charles Barkley deal, then went to Utah, where he found success as the backcourt teammate of John Stockton.
He replaces Lindsey Hunter, who became interim coach after Alvin Gentry and the Suns parted ways in mid-January.
Hawks name coach
Atlanta named longtime San Antonio assistant Mike Budenholzer as coach.
General manager Danny Ferry selected Budenholzer, 43, to replace Larry Drew. Drew's contract expires in June.
Ferry went to the Hawks last year after two years as vice president of basketball operations for the Spurs.
Kings sale approved
The NBA board of governors unanimously approved the sale of the Sacramento Kings to a group led by TIBCO Software chairman Vivek Ranadive.
After owners blocked the relocation of the franchise to Seattle this month, the Maloof family reached an agreement to sell a 65 percent controlling interest in the Kings to Ranadive's group at a total franchise valuation of $535 million. Ranadive, who will have to sell his minority stake in the Golden State Warriors, becomes the NBA's first Indian-born majority owner.
