Serge Ibaka finished with 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt) to go along with 11 rebounds, two blocks, and one steal over 27 minutes as the Clippers lost to the Bucks 105-100 on Sunday.
This was Ibaka's fourth double-double of the season and his first in the last 15 games. The big man had an up and down February averaging 10.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.2 blocks per game. Those are decent numbers on the surface but he only shot 29.7-percent from three after averaging 43.8-percent, and 37.5-percent from three in December and January, respectively. Overall, the veteran center carries a nice floor and is one of the more consistent fantasy options at the position.
Serge Ibaka provided 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt) to go along with seven rebounds over 23 minutes in the Clippers 111-97 loss to the Grizzlies on Thursday.
Ibaka was one of the few Clippers that shot well on a rough night for Los Angeles. His three made three-pointers were the most he's made in a game since late January. Entering Thursday, the big man was shooting just 26.7-percent from three over his last 12 games. Perhaps this game will serve as a catalyst to fix his recent shooting woes.
Serge Ibaka ended up with eight points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt) to go along with eight rebounds, two assists, and one block over 21 minutes as the Clippers lost to the Nets 112-108 on Sunday.
The eight points weren't much from Ibaka but the fact he shot 50-percent (4-for-8) from the field was a step in the right direction. The big man has not shot well in the month of February, particularly from three. He's shooting 28.5-percent (8-for-28) from deep over the last 11 contests and has scored in the double figures just four times over that span. He's been in a bit of a funk so hopefully Sunday's solid shooting performance, albeit a small sample, will kick things into gear for the veteran center.
Serge Ibaka scored 21 points (9-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with nine rebounds, six assists, and two blocks over 29 minutes as the Clippers cruised past the Cavaliers 128-111 on Sunday.
Ibaka's 21 points and six assists were both season bests while his nine boards were the most he's hauled over the last six contests. The big man has gone through a scoring lull so far in February but this game could serve as a catalyst and get him heading in the right direction. The Clips will look to win their fourth game in a row as they face the Heat on Monday in the second half of a back-to-back.
Serge Ibaka put up 10 points (4-4 FG, 2-2 FT) with three rebounds and two assists over 20 minutes in the Clippers 119-112 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
This was the first time nine games that Ibaka didn't record a block as his lackluster February continues. The big man is averaging just 9.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.6 blocks per game through five games this month. He should get back on track starting on Friday against the Bulls.
