    Adams double-double boosts Thunder

    Steven Adams has scored 14 points and nailed 11 rebounds to help Oklahoma City Thunder to a 101-91 win over the Charlotte Hornets.


    Steven Adams has posted his 12th double-double of the season as his Oklahoma City Thunder team stormed home in the final quarter for a 101-91 NBA win over the Charlotte Hornets.

    Charlotte led 31-28 at the end of the first quarter, 59-55 at half-time and 76-73 at the three-quarter mark, but were outgunned 28-15 in the final spell.

    Russell Westbrook led the way with 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, as the Thunder snapped a three-game losing streak and avenged a 116-103 loss to the Hornets earlier this season in Oklahoma City.

    Adams provided solid support with 14 points and 11 rebounds, helping the Thunder to a 57-41 edge on the boards.

    The 2.13m Kiwi centre also picked up three steals, four blocks and an assist during his 31 minutes' court time.

    The Thunder now sit fifth in the Western Conference and will host bottom-placed Sacramento on Monday.
