Oklahoma City Thunder will again lean on Steven Adams to give them bursts of offence in today's NBA Playoffs match against the Golden State Warriors.

The two sides meet for game two of their Western Conference final this afternoon, with the Thunder up 1-0 in the series.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan says Adams needs to be a threat on both ends of the court.

He says Adams has evolved as the year has gone on and his offensive rebounding has been crucial.

Tip off is at 1pm.
