By no means has Steven Adams been poor this season, although the big Kiwi has failed to take his game to the next level that many Thunder fans have been expecting for the last 12 months.

Adams is averaging 14.1 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game, which shows little improvement over the previous campaign, although it is worth noting that his rebound totals are held back by the presence of Westbrook.

Adams also continues to struggle in matchups against the NBA's most dominant bigs, and he still needs to add consistency to his potentially excellent defense.

His free-throw shooting has also reached a career low of just 50%, although, at 25, Adams still has plenty of time to reach his All-Star potential, and the Thunder will be hoping for a number of big performances from the Kiwi during the upcoming playoffs.
