We bring you last week's top performances from New Zealanders who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.

Steven Adams

He recorded 17 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 36 minutes on the court. It's Adams' sixth season with the team. Adams has individually a very good year with high stats.
