Two-minute drill: May 6


Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder pulled off an improbable comeback on Sunday as they took game one over the Memphis Grizzlies 93-90 in Oklahoma City.

Durant finished the game with 35 points and 15 rebounds, and hit the game-winning shot with 11 seconds left to complete the double-digit fourth quarter comeback.

Since the injury to Russell Westbrook, Durant has averaged 35.3 points, and has helped the Thunder remain a legitimate contender in the Western Conference.

Game two will be Tuesday night at 8:30 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

In the next inning, Alex Gordon hit an RBI single in the bottom of tenth to give the Royals their sixth win in their last eight games.

Kansas is currently reviewing the case.
