Serge Ibaka News
Los Angeles Clippers forward/center Serge Ibaka scored 17 points in 22 minutes against the Thunder on Sunday, missing just once from the field and at the foul line. He went 7-for-8 from the floor with two triples and shot 1-for-2 at the charity stripe. Ibaka also got close to a double-double with eight rebounds and he handed out one assist. Ibaka also went 7-for-8 from the field against OKC on Friday, so he's demonstrating some incredible shooting right now. He'll face some good centers next, though, as the Clippers will take on Clint Capela and the Atlanta Hawks and Bam Adebayo and the Miami Heat, so Ibaka will have some serious work to do to keep up his form.
Los Angeles Clippers center Serge Ibaka (illness) will play in Wednesday's game against the Sacramento Kings, according to head coach Ty Lue. Ivica Zubac received the spot start in place of Ibaka on Sunday. Fantasy managers who are holding Zubac in hope of some streaming appeal can give up on that dream. He should return to the bench and Marcus Morris should see his normal role in the offense.
Los Angeles Clippers forward/center Serge Ibaka was the team's only productive starter in Sunday's shocking 124-73 loss to Dallas, shooting 6-for-11 from the field and getting close to a double-double with 13 points and nine rebounds. He also posted one block in 20 minutes of action. The rest of the starters combined for only 28 points, with Paul George leading the pack with 15. The Clippers ended up trailing 77-27 at halftime, with the 50-point deficit being the largest in NBA history at the break in the shot-clock era. Ibaka hasn't played much for his new club, averaging below 21 minutes per game, but he's been an efficient scorer whilst on the court. He gets a very good matchup next against Minnesota whose star center Karl-Anthony Towns tends to struggle on the defensive end.
Free agent big Serge Ibaka has agreed to a two-year, $19 million contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. Ostensibly the replacement for last year's Sixth Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell, who signed with the Lakers this week, Ibaka provides a solid upgrade at the four and five for the Clips. Likely to earn a starting role at one of the front court spots, Ibaka averaged 15.4 points and 8.2 rebounds per game last season for the Raptors, as well as 1.3 threes per game. He shot 51.2 percent from the floor. With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George both taking up offensive possessions, last year's numbers are likely the ceiling for Ibaka this season, but that's a pretty nice ceiling.
