Steve Adams

Winning start for Adams at new NBA side

In their opening match of the new season the Pelicans beat the Toronto Raptors 113 to 99, overcoming an 11-point, third-quarter deficit.

Adams had 31 minutes of court time, grabbing eight rebounds, scoring eight points and providing three assists.

Meanwhile, the game between Adam's former club, Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Houston Rockets match was postponed after three Houston players returned tests that were either positive or inconclusive for coronavirus.

Following contact tracing four other players also had to be quarantined.
