Just finished POR-OKC. Russ was great considering total lack of spacing. Hubie is right OKC has to consider staggering Ibaka/Westbrook more
Blazers beat OKC 106-89. Westbrook with 38 on 25 shots, Lance Thomas with 14, Ibaka 10. Blazers outscored the Thunder 31-12 in the fourth.
Eight combined turnovers from Serge Ibaka and Steven Adams. Rough night for the Thunder frontline.
Pretty much everyone on the Thunder's active roster besides Westbrook and Ibaka is a wack fantasy stud.
Thunder lead Portland 54-49 at the half. Westbrook 26 and 5 assists, Thomas 10, Ibaka 7. Thunder shooting 50 percent.
Rough half from the Thunder's starting frontline. Adams with more turnovers than points. Ibaka getting worked by Aldridge. Both with 3 fouls
LaMarcus Aldridge is giving Serge Ibaka the business right now.
Ibaka is a terrific defender, but Aldridge's length makes it too tough for him. LA has 18 on way to huge night
Ibaka has taken two 3-pointers in the first five minutes. He's 1-for-2.
Westbrook isn't just scoring either. He's getting easy looks for his guys, Ibaka in particular.
Kendrick Perkins on Serge Ibaka: "If he come out and really ball out like we know he can, he can get us 20 and 10 a night."
Defensive Player of the Year: 1. DeAndre Jordan. 2. Joakim Noah. 3. Serge Ibaka.
The Thunder's opening day starting lineup, per Scott Brooks: Westbrook, Roberson, Jones, Ibaka, Adams.
Places that much more pressure on Ibaka/RJax to consistently produce & leaves Brooks NEEDING to find something from Roberson/Jones/Lamb etc.
Pretty happy with my salary-cap fantasy team. $65m cap, keepers were Drummond, Ibaka and Green http://t.co/ETRn0slHc1
With injuries to Durant and Morrow, the Thunder's best healthy 3-point shooter is......Serge Ibaka, who hit 38.3 percent last season.
Starting lineup I'd expect on opening night: Westbrook, Roberson, PJ3, Ibaka, Adams. Bench: Jackson, Lamb, Collison, Perkins.
Serge Ibaka and Nick Collison a combined 4-of-6 from three in the first half.
Enes is baking Serge Ibaka right now.....I can't believe I just typed that
And then Kanter plays good D on Ibaka trying to isolate him. This is getting nuts!!!
Serge Ibaka wing threes are gonna be a thing this year. Especially with Durant out. Just nailed one a second ago.
80% of Serge Ibaka's field goals were assisted last season. What happens to him without Durant?
According to thunder coach Scott brooks, expect ibaka to play 30 minutes tonight and Westbrook to play up to 25 minutes tonight
Westbrook, Andre Roberson, Anthony Morrow, serge ibaka and Steven Adams to start for the thunder against the jazz tonight
Serge Ibaka went down with what looked like a right leg injury. Took a little while to get up. But walking it off, staying in the game.
Wolves opened up 35-25 lead before Ibaka answers with jumper
Serge Ibaka just flew in for a chasedown block of Thaddeus Young in transition. Hamstring/calf/ankle must be feeling healthy.
Ibaka is playing and starting, and no KPerkins and Collison for Thunder tonight
No Lamb, no Reggie Jackson, Ibaka is game-time decision and no KD of course
Thunder starting lineup the same as Friday: Westbrook, Roberson, Morrow, Ibaka, Adams.
Jeremy Lamb (left heel contusion) will not play tonight. Starters: Westbrook, Morrow, Roberson, Adams and Ibaka or Jones if Ibaka can't go.
Serge Ibaka's first stint of the preseason: 9 minutes, 4 points, 3 rebounds. Looked healthy, but a bit rusty.
Ibaka making his pre-season debut, Westbrook plays after sitting out last night. OKC going all out to beat the mighty Raptors?
Some great cross-matchups to start this Thunder-Raptors game: -Westbrook v Lowry -Ibaka v Amir Johnson -Adams v Valanciunas
