Ibaka Struggles to Find Offensive Game
Serge Ibaka’s shot attempts in the previous 10 contests before Saturday’s game at Cleveland have taken a curious dip.
The Thunder’s starting power forward was averaging just 10.1 points on only 8.7 shots per game in the last 10 games. Against Memphis on Thursday, he attempted a season-low three shots and scored only four points, tying a season low.
In six of the previous 10 games, Ibaka failed to reach 10 shot attempts. In four of those games, he didn’t get up more than eight.
Through the season’s first 34 games, Ibaka was averaging 14.8 points on 10.9 shot attempts and scored fewer than 10 points only seven times.
Ibaka scored 18 points on 7 for 12 shooting with a game-high-tying 12 rebounds against the Cavs.
