  • NBA PLAYOFFS: Grizzlies even series, beat Thunder in OT

    Kevin Durant's four-point play was magnificent, even by his lofty standards.
    With his Oklahoma City Thunder trailing by five with 13.8 seconds remaining in regulation, the scoring champion hit a difficult 3-pointer from the corner as he was being pushed out of bounds by Marc Gasol. Durant converted the free throw to make it a one-point game.
    The magic ran out for the Thunder, though. Zach Randolph scored 25 points to help Memphis defeat Oklahoma City 111-105 in overtime on Monday night and tie their first-round playoff series at one game apiece. The final result took nothing from perhaps the most spectacular play of his season.

    The Colorado Rockies outfielder went on the 15-day disabled list Monday, a move retroactive to Friday. To take his place on the roster, the Rockies recalled infielder Charlie Culberson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
