Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lin led Charlotte Hornets to a series-levelling 89-85 home victory over Miami Heat in Game 4.
Walker dropped 34 points on 13-28 from the floor, while Lin contributed 21 points from the bench. The Hornets led by 18 during the third quarter, but the Dwayne Wade-inspired Heat rallied impressively.
Arguably the most engrossing series of the first round, the Eastern rivals head back to Miami for a crucial Game 5 showdown.
Elsewhere, Oklahoma City Thunder wrapped up a 4-1 series win over Dallas Mavericks with a 118-104 win at home, while the fast-finishing Trail Blazers tied their series with LA Clippers at 2-all courtesy of a 98-84 result in Portland.
