5:45 am on 17 May 2014

The New Zealand basketballer Steven Adams and his NBA side Oaklahoma City Thunder are through to the Western Conference finals following a 104-98 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The game six win means they win the best of seven series four games to two.

Adams had plenty of court time, playing 39 minutes - second only to the Oaklahoma's star player and the NBA's MVP Kevin Durant.

He scored 10 points and took 11 rebounds.

OKC will play the San Antonio Spurs in the Conference final, with the winner advancing to the NBA final.
