The Oklahoma City Thunder's Kiwi centre Steven Adams isn't known for his shooting range. In fact, he's never attempted an in-game three-point shot in his 333-game NBA career.

However, he showed at the team's training before their overtime win against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday (NZ time) that he's got the range.

As cool as you like, the 24-year-old strolled up to the halfway line and lobbed the ball through the twine with one hand before giving showing off some dance moves to his teammates.

In his fourth NBA season, Adams has continued to show improvement and has played possibly the best basketball of his NBA career over the past month.

In five games in December alone, the big Kiwi averages just under 20 points and 10 rebounds, shooting at 70 per cent from the floor across 34 minutes per game.

While Adams has been having a solid individual season, the same can't be said for the Thunder who, after adding superstar forwards Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, have limped to a 12-13 record.

Their next chance to try get back to a .500 record will come on Tuesday (NZ time) when they host the Charlotte Hornets.
