Steven Adams' Thunder weren't able to halt the Clippers in their tracks this afternoon, as the LA-based side stole a nail-biting 110-108 win in Oklahoma.

The win sees the Clippers move to 8-1 to start the season and keeps them on top of the Western Conference standings.

Meanwhile, the Thunder move to 6-3 and are still looking to find the groove that led them to four straight just a few weeks ago.

Steven Adams finished the game with 2-5 from the field, and 2-2 from the free-throw line to finish with six points.

His fellow centre, Enes Kanter, finished with 13 points off the bench.

Meanwhile, Russell Westbrook's 29 points, 14 rebounds, and nine assists were impressive but not enough.

The Thunder's next game is against Orlando in Oklahoma on Monday.
