He led Galatasaray to a 1-point victory against the closely-ranked Tofas (16-8) 76-75 in the Turkish BSL in Wednesday night's game. Webster recorded 13 points in 33 minutes on the court. Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (14-9) is placed fifth in the BSL. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Webster has relatively good stats this year: 10.9ppg, 3.0rpg, 3.8apg, 2FGP: 47.8%, 3FGP: 37.5% and FT: 67.5% in 21 games he played so far.

Adams recorded a double-double by scoring 14 points and getting the same number of rebounds. He also added 2 blocks. The Oklahoma City Thunder has 49-33 record this season. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. It's Adams' sixth year with the team. Adams has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 13.9ppg, 9.5rpg, 1.6apg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 59.6%(481-807). Adams played for the New Zealand national team in 2011.

He scored 12 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Geraldton Buccaneers (4-1) are placed second in SBL group. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row.
