But, Fisher admitted, an adjustment period was inevitable.
“The reality is: It doesn’t matter what you’re doing,” Fisher wrote. “If you have to stop doing that thing for weeks or months, it takes a while for you to get used to doing it again.”
ADAMS GETS EXTENDED MINUTES
In his first start in place of the injured Kendrick Perkins, Steven Adams played only 16 minutes.
In his second, Adams received 25, his most playing time since mid-December. He had four points, four rebounds and one block.
“He had some good moments,” Brooks said. “And he had some moments we are going to look at on film and correct them for the next game.”

The Thunder continues its six-game homestand on Friday against the Grizzlies. Memphis is finally healthy and starting to round into form, winning five of its past six games.
