Adams tallied 19 points (9-11 FG, 1-1 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 39 minutes during Oklahoma City's 96-91 loss to the Jazz in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Adams came alive for what turned out to be the finale of the series, posting his best scoring and rebounding totals of the six games. The fifth-year big man had scored in double digits in only one game prior, and Friday also marked the first time he'd taken double-digit shot attempts. Adams improved across the stat sheet this past season, but a tough matchup against Rudy Gobert led to more modest averages of 10.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 33.3 minutes in the series against the Jazz.
Adams managed six points (2-6 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and two steals across 41 minutes during Oklahoma City's 107-99 win over the Jazz in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Adams continues to run into the brick wall that is Rudy Gobert, with Wednesday's scoring total serving as a series low. The 24-year-old's 33.3 percent success rate from the floor was also his poorest of the five games against the Jazz, and his obvious matchup problems are keeping his value in DFS postseason contests significantly capped. He'll look to generate better production as the Thunder once again try to avoid elimination in Friday's Game 6.
Adams turned in nine points (4-9 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 35 minutes during Oklahoma City's 113-96 loss to the Jazz in Game 4 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. The big man's production continues to be depressed compared to his regular-season numbers, as he's now scored in single digits in three straight games versus the Jazz. The biggest disparity thus far has been scoring and shot attempts, as Adams is averaging just 9.7 points (as compared to 13.9 in the regular season) on 7.3 shot attempts (as compared to a career-high 9.4 regular-season figure) in the first four contests of the series. He has managed seven rebounds in three outings against Utah, helping salvage his final lines overall. Adams will look to up his contributions back on his home floor in Wednesday's pivotal Game 5.
Adams contributed eight points (4-6 FG), two rebounds and one block across 26 minutes during Oklahoma City's 115-102 loss to the Jazz in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Adams once again ran into some foul trouble while doing battle with Rudy Gobert, getting whistled on four occasions over his 26 minutes. The 24-year-old big man has found the matchup against the Jazz frontcourt particularly challenging, as he's averaging just 9.7 points and 5.3 rebounds over the first three games of the series. Adams will look to bounce back and attempt to help the Thunder even the series at 2-2 in Monday's Game 4.
Adams finished with nine points (4-5 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes during Wednesday's 102-95 loss to the Jazz. Adams played just under half the game as he struggled with foul trouble, ultimately taking a seat early after fouling out in the fourth quarter. He put up decent per-minute numbers, but he simply wasn't on the court enough to make a large impact in the effort to contain Rudy Gobert. Against one of the toughest defensive units in the league, Adams perhaps has the most daunting matchup, but he'll look to bounce back in Game 3 Saturday.
