Thunder's Serge Ibaka, Reggie Jackson to start Game 3
The Oklahoma City Thunder will welcome back Serge Ibaka on Sunday, and Reggie Jackson will start at shooting guard.
It's official: Serge Ibaka will start for the Oklahoma City Thunder in Sunday's Game 3 of the Western Conference finals. Thunder head coach Scott Brooks informed reporters of this before the game, via ESPN's Royce Young, adding that Reggie Jackson will start at shooting guard.
Ibaka's presence changes everything for Oklahoma City on both ends, provided he is able to approximate what he did before the calf strain that kept him out of the series' first two games. Jackson will give the Thunder some much-needed shooting and another ballhandler in the starting lineup, though Brooks is sacrificing his main source of bench scoring.
The rotation will be completely different than it has been recently. Oklahoma City is hoping the result will be, too.
