Serge Ibaka came to life on Tuesday against the Bucks, knocking in four 3-pointers on his way to 16 points against the Bucks.
This is why they brought him here. Ibaka finished with seven boards, six assists and two blocks, and provided the Raptors with some much needed outside shooting. He helped to put Milwaukee in a hole at the start of the fourth quarter with an explosive run, bombing away from outside and putting the ball on the court for an impressive blow by. Perhaps even more critically, Ibaka looked like the player who led the league in blocks for three seasons on the defensive end. He altered nearly every shot around the rim and one of his stuffs came after an impressive adjustment against Giannis Antetokounmpo. If the Raptors get this version of Ibaka in Game 3, look out.
