Steven Adams and the Oklahoma City Thunder's big front-court is on the Golden State Warriors' minds ahead of the NBA's western conference finals.

Adams and fellow Thunder big man Enes Kanter were difference-makers in their semifinal series against the San Antonio Spurs.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr says he hopes his starting centre Andrew Bogut shakes off an adductor injury to try and counter the Thunder.

Kerr says the Thunder are probably the biggest and strongest team in the NBA, so he needs Bogut.
