Mavs guard Raymond Felton on his confrontation with Thunder center Steven Adams: “I’m not going to let you just elbow me in my face and I let it go. Whatever. I’ll take a technical or whatever, fine or whatever it is. I’m not going to back down for nothing. I’m definitely not going to let anybody hit me in my face freely for no reason. I’m just down there trying to battle a big 7-footer for a rebound and he elbows me to my face. Like, you’re that much bigger than me, what you need to elbow a little guy like me to get a rebound? I didn’t like it, so I let him know that. But whatever, it’s over with now.

Adams plays his role well: defender, enforcer, sometimes scorer and giant personality. “It’s been going quite well, mate,” Adams said of his season. “Just playing well my role and trying to win games. I thought I did a pretty good job of that.” The third-year center averaged a career-high eight points, shot a career-high 61.3% and also averaged 6.7 rebounds. But more important, he was part of the Thunder’s two best five-man net efficiency lineups.
