A third big performance in as many games for Steven Adams helped the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 114-90 win over the Los Angeles Lakers this afternoon.

Adams scored 21 points from 10-12 shooting to go with 10 rebounds as he secured his third straight double-double in a quality outing.

The 24-year-old had more offensive rebounds (seven) than the entire Lakers team combined (six), and more offensive rebounds than any Laker had total rebounds, as the Thunder coasted to their third straight win.

Adams, who didn't take part in the fourth quarter of the match, was the Thunder's second leading scorer behind forward Carmelo Anthony, who spent the night schooling impressive Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma and piled on 27 points.

The result was never in question as the OKC side put on one of their most complete performances of the season.

Taking a 33-25 lead after the first quarter, the Thunder saw the gap whittled down to six points at halftime.

Any hopes of a Lakers resurgence were snuffed out in the second half, as the Thunder outscored the visitors 54-36 in the final two periods of play to secure a well-deserved win.

The Thunder got production across the board, with all but one of their players who saw the floor putting the ball in the basket.

The side also followed Adams' lead on the offensive glass, as nine players secured at least one extra possession with an offensive rebound. The match was the third in a row in which at least seven Thunder players had collected an offensive rebound.

The result gives the Oklahoma City side a bit of momentum as they eye a clash with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday.
