Adams is on a hot streak of late — averaging 9.1 points and 9.9 rebounds on 68 percent shooting the past nine games.

And teamed up with Westbrook, he’s formed a nightmare pick-and-roll combo — becoming the rare (only?) Thunder center that been able to consistently catch a Westbrook bullet and quickly finish. “(Bryant) throws the ball as hard as he can at me and I have to try and catch the ball,” Adams said of a drill he’s been working on. “Because Russell is going like a 100 miles an hour. You have to be ready at all times.”
