Serge Ibaka disappeared in 20 minutes of action, as he went 1-of-5 from the field to finish with two points, four boards, and one block.
This was a clear letdown coming from the once popular defensive dynamo. He does generally deliver his production within a certain range and is solid. Outlying duds like this one are few and far between, so there’s no need to read too much into it. He’s part of an elite handful of big men who can deliver 1.5 treys and 1.5 blocks per game, so he does have his appeal for small-ball teams wanting to take a dip in the blocks category.
