5:17 am on 7 October 2013

The reviews of Steven Adams first outing for his NBA club the Oklahoma City Thunder have generally been solid.

The Thunder started their pre-season with a 95-82 win over Fenerbache in Istanbul.

Adams, the 12th pick in the draft, started the second half at centre and added 7 points and 6 rebounds in 15 minutes.

Reviews have praised him for his awareness on defence, although he did commit 5 fouls and 3 turnovers in his time on court.

The Thunder's next game is in Manchester.
