Basketball: Big game for Steven Adams in Thunder win

If Oklahoma City can secure a home win over the Sacramento Kings in Saturday's matinee, the Thunder will be a season high 11 wins over 500.

Russell Westbrook didn't get to rest and didn't add to his triple-double total.

Adams collected his 14th double-double of the season as he finished with 16 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 35 minutes.

Oklahoma City made it five wins in a row, behind another powerhouse performance from Russell Westbrook, taking down with Sacramento Kings 110-94. "I have never played against a player that strong". "I started with 11 minutes and then started to get more, so I am just starting to get used to it because most of the time I have been playing for the D-League and when I got here the last few games it was a lot different", Papagiannis said.

Kings rookie centre Georgios Papagiannis top scored for his side with 14 points, and said post game, Steven Adams is the strongest player he has even faced.
