Sydney Kings are just getting started, says Jaylen Adams

American import Jaylen Adams has warned his rivals that they have yet to see the best of the Kings despite Sydney being on a six-game winning streak that propelled them into the final.

The Kings are fifth on the scale after sealing a narrow winning streak in recent weeks, including three by a three-point margin.

Adams scored a three-pointer off the buzzer to seal a 93-90 win over Adelaide last weekend, capping an impressive comeback from injury with purple form that already hints he could become this season’s MVP.

Having missed six weeks with an ankle injury, the former Portland Trailblazers, Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks man says his team is just beginning to discover his combinations on the field and are staying away from the finished product.

“We are improving with every game. We have a lot of talented guys, it could be anyone’s night any night,” Adams said. “It feels good, we really see the real side of the team, knowing it can be anyone anytime and that’s how we approach it. [matches].

“Someone has to come out and be good every night, and it’s a different guy in the winning streak every game. It feels good as a team, everyone is growing in confidence as we improve.

The Kings face Cairns at home on Sunday afternoon and despite the Taipans sitting in eighth place, having won just five of their 14 games this season, Adams is not expecting an easy game.

“We’ve taken the approach that every game is equally important, no matter who we’re playing against,” he said. “What we are achieving and what we want to do this season, we cannot take any team lightly. Everyone we face, no matter where they are on the ladder, we want to go out and play our best game.

“It’s not a knock on Cairns either. Cairns are a very good team. They’ve struggled lately but they’ve been playing super hard, they’re defending well, it’s always going to be a challenge.
