Big man Steven Adams has become the X-factor for the Oklahoma City Thunder these playoffs. His rebounding and scoring numbers have jumped significantly, and those abilities were key in his team's victory in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

But in Game 2, Adams was stopped momentarily after trying to defend a Draymond Green drive to the basket during the second quarter.

Green scored on an easy floater in front of the hoop, but Draymond’s knee gave the mustached New Zealander a bit of a wake up call, as he got kneed straight in the pelotas.

There’s a reason the Thunder called a timeout almost immediately.

It looks like the pregame spirit fingers didn’t work out for Adams.

Adams put up a solid game on Wednesday with nine points and 10 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to stop Golden State’s run in the second and third quarter, as the Warriors won 118-91 in a game that featured lots of cussing and treys from Stephen Curry.

The seven-footer will ice his balls and return to the court in Game 3 on Sunday in OKC.
