Serge Ibaka was going wild against the Houston Rockets, blocking shots, throwing down dunks and shooting threes. He greeted James Harden back to OKC with a massive block in the first quarter which set the tone for the rest of his night. Ibaka finished with 17 points on 7-11 shooting plus seven rebounds. His dunks and swats were instrumental in shutting Houston down and preventing them from getting momentum going.
Oklahoma City takes game one, 120-91.
Serge Ibaka just went MJ-against-the-Celtics with that baseline jumper. Then stuck his tongue out running back down the court.— Royce Young (@dailythunder) April 22, 2013
No.... the most impressive number of the day is that Serge Ibaka is still just 23.— Dave Zirin (@EdgeofSports) April 22, 2013

An Ibaka 3 puts OKC up 22. McHale better put in that dog who can do the flips. #AmexNBA— Lang Whitaker (@langwhitaker) April 22, 2013
