After the Oklahoma City Thunder were defeated in the first two games of the Western Conference Finals the word on the team going forward is that someone had to step up besides Kevin Durant. In Game Three that someone was Thabo Sefolosha. Saturday night in Game Four it was Serge Ibaka.
Durant led the way with 36 points, 6 rebounds, and 8 assists, but the man of the night was none other than Serge Ibaka. The man is known more for his defense, but Saturday night he could do no wrong offensively. He was perfect on the night shooting 11-11 from the field and 4-4 from the free throw line for 26 points.
The Spurs will try to right the ship when they return home to San Antonio for Game Five Monday night at 9 PM ET. Fans will likely hope for a little deja vu. The last time they lost two in a row they reeled off 20 wins in a row. There may not be 20 games left this season, but fans would probably be satisfied with a 6-game streak.
