At times Sunday night Serge Ibaka was limping, the rest of the time he was leaping to block shots while leading his Thunder teammates to a dramatic and inspiring 106-97 win over the San Antonio Spurs to bring new life to a series that had appeared to be dying.
Ibaka returned from a strained calf that was supposed to have kept him out of the rest of the playoffs to score 15 points, grab seven rebounds and block four shots.
“I did very well, I think,” Ibaka told TNT’s David Aldridge right after the game. “I just tried to give my teammates some energy. I will keep doing the same, try to be everywhere.”
