      Thunder's Serge Ibaka: Goes cold from field

      Ibaka went cold from the field in Wednesday's win against the Pelicans, posting just six points (2-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes. Ibaka had a rather uncharacteristically inefficient performance Wednesday, and it's unlikely he'll repeat it too often this season. He's never been a great rebounder, but his blocking ability puts him ahead of many big men, and owners shouldn't expect too many 18-percent shooting performances from him moving forward.

      Thunder's Serge Ibaka: Posts solid line

      Ibaka posted 18 points (8-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), nine rebounds, and three blocks in 35 minutes of action Monday against the Grizzlies. Ibaka's performance Monday resembled a rather average one for the big man, who has averaged 15.6 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks over the last five games. He's attempted more field goals over the last two games (16.0 FGA) compared to his season average (12.4 FGA), perhaps due to the absence of Kevin Durant (hamstring), but this behavior won't last long when Durant returns. Still, he's capable of grabbing boards, hitting treys, and swatting shots, which makes him a strong option moving forward, even when Durant comes back.

      Thunder's Serge Ibaka: Double-double in Sunday's loss

      Ibaka scored 16 points (8-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt) with 10 rebounds and three blocks in 35 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Celtics. It's just his second double-double of the season, but unfortunately it was wasted on a night when Russell Westbrook was the only other OKC player to score in double digits. Ibaka is now averaging 14.6 points, 8.1 boards and 3.0 blocks in eight November games.

      Ibaka scored 11 points (4-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with seven rebounds, seven blocks, two assists and a steal in 29 minutes during Friday's win over the 76ers. After a rare two-game stretch without a rejection, Ibaka roared back with a new season high in blocks. He's now averaging 14.4 points, 7.9 boards and 3.0 blocks in seven November games.

      Thunder's Serge Ibaka: Nets 23 points, six rebounds in Tuesday's win

      Ibaka finished with 23 points (9-15 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and three assists in Tuesday's 125-101 win over the Wizards. Ibaka doesn't step out often, but managed to hit all three of his shots from downtown after previously going 1-for-6 in his first seven games of the season. He played a team-high 30 minutes, though the Thunder were coasting to victory early in this one.

      Thunder's Serge Ibaka: Swats five on Sunday

      Ibaka scored 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-3 FT) with seven rebounds, five blocks and four assists in 31 minutes during Sunday's win over the Nuggets. It's his best game of the season to date, as Ibaka filled up the state sheet nearly across the board. His numbers dipped a bit last season when he was giv en additional offensive responsibility, but as long as Kevin Durant can stay healthy, Ibaka should be able to return to the complementary role he thrives in.

      Thunder's Serge Ibaka: Five blocks against Jazz

      Ibaka tallied 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-2 FT) five rebounds, one assist and five blocks in a preseason win over Utah on Tuesday. It was a block party in Utah, as Ibaka wanted to show up-and-coming star Rudy Gobert who was boss. This is what makes Ibaka so valuable, as there are only a few players in basketball who can match Ibaka's blocking prowess. If he can just raise his 7.8 rebounding average from last season closer to 10.0, he would become even more valuable.

      Thunder's Serge Ibaka: Posts 18 points Sunday

      Ibaka posted 18 points (7-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, and a steal over 32 minutes in Sunday's 111-98 defeat of the Nuggets. Ibaka returned after a scheduled day of rest caused him to sit out Friday's tilt against the Grizzlies, and looked to be in regular-season form. The veteran power forward matched the preseason high in scoring he'd established in the exhibition opener, and appears to be at full strength in his return from the knee surgery that caused him to miss the final 18 games of the 2014-15 campaign. If both Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant remain healthy, Ibaka will serve as a fine third offensive option in the Thunder offense while also providing his signature rebounding and defense.

      Oklahoma City Thunder's Serge Ibaka Scores team-high 18 points Wednesday

      Ibaka scored a team-high 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and pulled down six boards in Wednesday's preseason win over the Timberwolves. Ibaka missed the Thunder's final 18 games last season after undergoing right knee surgery, but he received full clearance for training camp and isn't expected to be limited in any capacity when the season starts. The 26-year-old noticeably regressed last season after seeing both his scoring (from 15.1 to 14.3 points per game) and rebounding (8.8 to 7.8) dip from 2013-14, while also shooting a career-worst 47.6 percent from the field. However, some of those struggles could likely be attributed to Ibaka having to take on a greater offensive role while Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant missed significant time with injuries. With both Thunder stars now back to carry the load offensively, Ibaka should receive more open looks and play more efficiently.
