Steven Adams, who is not renowned for his scoring abilities, notched his first three-pointer in the NBA in spectacular fashion. The towering Kiwi got the ball with just seconds on the clock and casually hoisted a one-handed shot from his own half to make his first three-pointer. While Steven Adams' buzzer-beater was outrageous itself, the Thunder's No. 12 topped it off with a cheeky shimmy. 

Steven Adams and Thunder went on to beat Pelicans 123-112. Adams finished the game with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists. Thunder teammate Danilo Gallinari top-scored for Thunder with 29 points. Zion Williamson dropped 32 points (career-high) while also adding six rebounds and an assist.
