OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kevin Durant insists he can carry as much as Thunder coach Scott Brooks wants to heap onto his shoulders with Russell Westbrook injured and out for the rest of the playoffs.

The Memphis Grizzlies are testing that theory.

The Grizzlies were able to largely neutralize Durant's supporting cast in Game 2, pulling out a 99-93 victory Tuesday night to tie the Western Conference semifinals at 1-1.

Oklahoma City made it through the first round without Westbrook, getting 25 points from sixth man Kevin Martin to win at Houston in Game 6. But after scoring 25 again in the opener against Memphis, Martin made just 2 of 11 shots and had six points as the Thunder handed over home-court advantage to the Grizzlies.

Game 3 is Saturday in Memphis.
