Having set his career-high for points in a game earlier this month, Adams today played the most minutes in his National Basketball Association career, in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 119-117 triple overtime victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Adams suffered a blow to the head while defending Philadelphia's Joel Embiid with 32 seconds remaining in the first overtime of a 119-117 triple overtime win over the 76ers.

Adams fouled out in the final overtime period, and Embiid took the opportunity to poke some fun at the 24-year-old.

The Thunder continue to get solid efforts from center Steven Adams, who scored a team-high 23 points on 11-of-16 shooting and is averaging 19 points on 71.3 percent shooting in seven games this month.

Embiid brushed off Westbrook's wave and took a shot at the Thunder guard's stats.

Westbrook, of course, would notch a triple-double-27 points, 18 rebounds and 15 assists.

LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 16 points.
