Steven Adams was on the floor for 31 minutes on Thursday but struggled to take advantage against a smaller Rockets lineup, finishing with eight points (4-of-4), 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and four turnovers.
The Thunder may need to make an adjustment ahead of Game 3 as Adams has struggled against the run-and-gun Rockets. Adams can't guard the perimeter very well so perhaps the Thunder need to shift Danilo Gallinari over to center and get more minutes for Nerlens Noel. Adams and the Thunder will look to get on track on Saturday. Noel saw 18 minutes off the pine and returned four points, nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks.
