Serge Ibaka will never forget the game he played Sunday. In his first matchup against his former team, the Orlando Magic big man broke the Oklahoma City Thunder's hearts with a winning jump shot with 0.4 seconds left. This capped off one of the best performances Ibaka has ever had -- he finished with a career-high 31 points on 13-for-19 shooting, with nine rebounds and four blocks.
Here's the winner:
Credit Magic coach Frank Vogel for going with the hot hand and the guy who had something to prove. Ibaka isn't typically the sort of player who gets the ball with the game on the line, but he hit Thunder big man Steven Adams with a pump fake and then delivered.
Orlando needed every bit of brilliance from Ibaka, by the way. The Magic won 119-117 despite another absurd game from Russell Westbrook, who finished with 41 points on 14-for-21 shooting, 16 assists and 12 rebounds.
