Adams managed nine points (3-6 FG, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, an assist and a steal over 28 minutes during Saturday's 108-101 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals.
The big man came within a rebound of his second double-double of the series, and fourth game with double-digit rebounds. Adams continues to play a pivotal role down low versus Draymond Green, and has done a respectable job containing him throughout the series. He'll look to do his part in the Thunder's difficult quest to dethrone the Warriors on their home court in Monday's Game 7, a contest into which Adams will bring series averages of 10.2 points and 8.8 rebounds.
Adams supplied eight points (4-6 FG), 10 rebounds, an assist and a block over 31 minutes during Thursday's 120-111 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.
The 22-year-old big man hauled in double-digit boards for the third time in the series, and made the most of his limited opportunties on offense. Adams is not quite the contributor on offense he was in the semifinals versus the Spurs, but he's still managed averages of 10.4 points and 8.8 rebounds over the first five games against the Warriors.
Adams has been a force around the rim in the playoffs, averaging 10.1 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game. Additionally, he's stepped up his contributions on offense too, averaging an efficient 10.9 points per game over the last 12 contests. Adams essentially split time at center with veteran Enes Kanter during the regular season, but he's seeing a lion's share of the minutes down low in this postseason run.
Adams managed 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, a block and two steals over 40 minutes in Thursday's 113-99 series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Spurs.
The 22-year-old rattled off three straight double-doubles to close out the series, and hauled in double-digit boards over all six games. Adams was generally able to dominate down low against a particularly ineffective Tim Duncan, but figures to encounter more resistance against Andrew Bogut in the conference finals. The third-year pro did receive a healthy heap of playing time through the last five games, with Adams playing no less than 35 minutes and as much as 41. That trend will likely continue in the next round, when the Thunder will need all hands on deck to have a chance at prevailing.
Steven Adams produced 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-6 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 35 minutes in Tuesday's 95-91 win over the Spurs in Game 5 of the series.
Coach Billy Donovan has upped Adams' workload in the last four games of the series, as the center has logged no fewer than 35 minutes in any contest. The added court time has translated to enhanced production -- Adams is averaging 10.5 points (on 69.6% shooting from the field), 12.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in that span.
