Kevin Durant scored 36 points on Saturday, including 16 consecutive points in the fourth quarter, as the Thunder held off San Antonio to even the Western Conference finals at 2-2.

The league's leading scorer went into attack mode and quickly overwhelmed Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Jackson, and a too-little-too-late barrage of double-teams. Russell Westbrook and James Harden combined for just 18 points but contributed plenty elsewhere, Serge Ibaka had a career night with 26 points on 11-of-11 FGs, Kendrick Perkins busted out for 15 points and nine rebounds, and the Thunder added an exclamation point to their win on Thursday, which halted the Spurs' record 20-game win streak. It's now a three-game series, but OKC needs to steal a win in hostile San Antonio.

Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

Olynyk has missed five straight games, but the questionable tag represents an upgrade, as it appears he is inching his way closer to a return. We should have a final update on Olynyk's status for Saturday when coach Erik Spoelstra addresses the media pregame. Hassan Whiteside, James Johnson and Bam Adebayo will see extra minutes if Olynyk remains sidelined.

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that both Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday would not dress for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves.

This is the second straight game that Chicago has benched both Lopez and Holiday, as the Bulls are fully committed to tank mode. It now appears safe to drop Holiday in fantasy leagues. David Nwaba started for Chicago on Thursday and finished with 21 points, nine rebounds, and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes. He is worth consideration as a DFS flier on Saturday night.
Feb 24 - 1:08 PM

Although the MRI results have yet to be released, Jimmy Butler (knee) is officially listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

Wolves fans and Butler owners remain forced to anxiously await an update on Butler's knee. According to NBA.com's David Aldridge, there was "some optimism" in Butler's camp that he did not tear his ACL on Friday night. We'll pass along an update as soon as the results of the MRI are revealed.
Feb 24 - 1:06 PM

Tyreke Evans (right rib), Chandler Parsons (illness) and Wayne Selden Jr. (right knee soreness) have been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

Evans injured his rib in the fourth quarter Friday night vs. Cleveland. He was in pain as he headed to the locker room and was unable to return to the contest. Thus, it is not surprising the Grizzlies kept him out on the second night of a back-to-back. We can expect an update on Evans' status going forward when coach JB Bickerstaff addresses the media Saturday night. Memphis' next game is Monday at Boston. Andrew Harrison and Ben McLemore will likely see an uptick in minutes and scoring opportunities with Evans sidelined.

Eric Gordon (illness) was unable to practice on Saturday and is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Gordon missed Friday's game vs. Minnesota due to the same illness. If he is unable to suit up on Sunday as well, P.J. Tucker, Luc Mbah a Moute and Joe Johnson would see additional playing time. The Rockets then play the back end of a back-to-back on Monday in Utah.

Julius Randle ended up with 18 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists over 30 minutes in Friday's 124-102 victory against the Lakers.

Randle finished 9-of-14 from the field while turning in an impressive plus-27 rating. It was his fifth-career triple-double, and the only thing that went wrong was he ended up 0-of-1 from the free-throw line. But that's splitting hairs. Randle certainly looked rejuvenated after the All-Star break. He has made at least seven successful field goals in nine consecutive outings. He'll look to keep it rolling Saturday in Sacramento against the NBA's 20th-ranked scoring defense.
Feb 24 - 2:13 AM

Wilson Chandler pulled down a season-high 16 rebounds in Friday's win over the Spurs, adding 18 points, three assists and four triples in 38 minutes.

This was his third double-double of the season and his fourth career game with at least 16 rebounds -- his career-high is 17 set back in 2010. He's on fire right now and has played 34+ minutes in four straight contests, averaging 18.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.5 triples in that span. He's worth owning while he's hot, but his minutes could be in jeopardy when Paul Millsap (wrist) returns.
Feb 24 - 1:19 AM

Nikola Jokic led the Nuggets to a 122-119 win over the Spurs on Friday, posting his third straight triple-double with 28 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds.

The Joker finished 10-of-16 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, adding three triples in 34 minutes. Jokic and the Nuggets have now won four straight games and are tied with the Blazers for the No. 6 seed out West. "I think there's some people that understand what Nikola's doing, what we're doing but overall I think a lot of people, they don't even understand what's going on right now in Denver," coach Mike Malone said after the game. Led by Jokic, Gary Harris and Jamal Murray, this team is on the rise and they are only going to become more dangerous with Paul Millsap (wrist) due back soon.
Feb 24 - 1:05 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge (knee soreness) returned from a two-game absence in Friday's 122-119 loss to the Nuggets, scoring a game-high 38 points in 36 minutes.

Coach Gregg Popovich talked about resting LMA before the All-Star break so he wouldn't have to do it down the stretch, so we'll see if he keeps his word. Popovich also said he'd be "surprised" if Kawhi Leonard (quad, personal) played again this season, meaning Aldridge could carry the offense the rest of the way. He's locked in as an early-round asset and hit 13-of-23 shots and 12-of-14 free throws with five rebounds, three assists and one steal.
Feb 24 - 12:47 AM

Tobias Harris scored 30 points with 12 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and five 3-pointers against the Suns on Friday.

That's a season-high in boards and just his second double-double. The Suns had no answer for him early as the Clips got out to a 19-0 lead, and the Clippers scored 40 in the first quarter alone. Even before this gem, Harris continues to be a steady hand with his new team, averaging 17.9 points, 6.7 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.7 treys. He'll be a mid-round guy going forward.
Feb 24 - 12:46 AM

Anthony Davis had another gigantic stat line in a 124-123 win over the Heat on Friday, scoring 45 points with 17 rebounds, two assists, five steals, five blocks and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes.

Goodness. AD is posting 40-15s like he scoring a tennis match these days with three of those in his last four. His averages over his last four are almost off the charts with 42.3 points, 14.8 boards, 2.0 dimes, 4.0 steals, 3.0 blocks and 2.3 treys on 55.9 percent from the field and 83.7 percent from the line. He's just incredible when he's cruising like this.
