OKC Vs 76ers pre season

NZ's Steven Adams got to start for the Thunder in place of the injured Kendrick Perkins (dislocated finger).

The Thunder won 103-99.

Adams finished with six points (3/4 FG), four rebounds, two blocks, a steal and assists in nearly 17 minutes on court.

The Thunder were led, as usual, by superstar Kevin Durant who finished with a near triple-double of 21 points, eight rebounds and 12 assists, while Reggie Jackson (29 points, six rebounds, eight assists) and Serge Ibaka (18 points, 11 rebounds) were the other chief contributors.

Adams looking nice.

Brooks, the management and the players can't be upset at a guy shooting 75%. From memory he was 3/4 from the FG last game as well.

Naturally, you would say he needs to increase those rebounding numbers.

But this OKC team is an excellent rebounding team so it's not like the Center position is the "be all and end all". Durant, Wesbtook, Ibaka, Sefolosha, Perkins, Collison are all very good rebounders.

Dellavedova is currently on the court for Cleveland too. Hasn't done anything yet though.

apparently the media in OKC are buzzing out on how comfortable he is and how well he is going so far.
there is already talk that he will be in the teams playing rotation straight off the bat as he has already shown that he can positively contribute.

saw him setting screens in the highlights from the the previous game but haven't seen anything of this game yet.

hope the Cavs pick up Delly, the guy deserves a shot at the NBA as there is no doubt he can compete at that level

The longer perkins is on the bench the better for OKC
