Serge Ibaka has season-high six blocks (Dec 17 12:00 ET )
Serge Ibaka had a season-high six blocks on Tuesday vs. the Kings, adding nine points, six boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
Serge Ibaka fouled out in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday, scoring seven points with one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer.
The Scoop:It was his first game without a rebound since 2011 and the fourth of his career. Ibaka's rebounding average dropped to 7.2 per game, which is down from 8.8 last season. This will probably be one of his worst games, so feel free to try and buy low while you can.
Serge Ibaka made all five of his field goals and all five of his free throws to finish Tuesday's home victory with 15 points in just 24 minutes of action.
The Scoop:The low playing time isn't a lasting problem and Ibaka's efficiency is a great sight, as he's been able to pick his spots offensively now that Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are back in action. Ibaka added two steals and three blocks to round out a thoroughly satisfactory line for his fantasy owners.
Serge Ibaka stepped up in Sunday's 96-94 win vs. the Pistons with 13 points, 13 rebounds (six offensive), four blocks and only one turnover in 33 minutes.
The Scoop:We've been anticipating a return to form for Ibaka once OKC's superstars returned to action, and this is an encouraging step in that direction. This was his fifth double-double of the season and he's averaging 3.3 blocks over the past six games, helping him creep toward top-40 value after a slow start to the season.
Serge Ibaka had six points (3-of-11 FGs), three rebounds and four blocks on Tuesday, the first game in which OKC has had Ibaka, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook all available.
The Scoop:Ibaka was asked to play an unfamiliar offensive role to begin the season, and he should creep back toward elite value now that he's free to pick his spots more judiciously. He's blocked 13 shots in the past four games, which is huge for his fantasy value, but the buy-low window remains propped open thanks to his abnormally poor shooting this season.
