Kevin Durant struggled from the field but still doubled up with 15 points and 12 rebounds to go with four assists, two steals, and two blocks in the win over the Grizzlies on Saturday.
After averaging 33.0 points over the first three games of the series, Durant failed to hit that mark Saturday finishing with only 15 points while shooting 23.8 percent from the field. Despite the low scoring effort from Durant, the Thunder still escaped with the win, tying the series at two games a piece proving that they can get the job done even when their MVP is having an off night.

Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
