Time July 23, the third round of the CBA regular season
In this game, Adams made his debut in the second quarter. As soon as he came up, Adams contributed a steal, but failed to make a basket. Adams, who just returned to the game, didn't feel very good, and then he missed three consecutive three-pointers, but he can still show his comprehensive skills to lead the team to score.
After Tianjin scored an 11-0 tie, with 9 minutes 54 seconds left in the second quarter, Adams scored the first goal of the season with a slow European step layup; with 7 minutes 24 seconds left, Adams dribbled more than half of the ball. After the field, he completed an aerial relay with his teammate Zhao Xuhong, who succeeded in dunking.
In the last 3 seconds of the half, when Tianjin was approaching the point difference to only 3 points, Adams hit the top three-pointer to help Qingdao continue into the second half with a 6-point advantage.
By the end of the quarter, Adams had taken over the game. Less than a minute after the opening, Tianjin's three-pointer was hot. After He Siyu and Meng Zikai made consecutive three-pointers, Adams hit two unreasonable and super-long three-pointers and assisted Wang Qingming for the basket. To score, Tianjin was stopped with a wave of 8-0, but after the timeout, Tianjin failed to successfully defend against Adams. In the end, under the leadership of Adams, Qingdao won the game.
This is also the second season Adams has played in Qingdao. Last season, he represented the team in 29 games, averaging 34.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 2.6 steals per game.
