2. Hello? Is Serge Ibaka there?

Will the Real Serge Ibaka please stand up? Ibaka has been an enigma the entire series and this game is no different. Regular season Ibaka was a good spot up shooter, a willing driver and kind of a black hole.

Post season Ibaka is a ghost. In 22 minutes of action, he posted a stat line of three points, two rebounds and an assist. That’s it.

It might be a stretch to say Ibaka is the Wizards-third best player in the series. However, it’s not that far off.

He’s been a turnover monster on drives, screen and rolls and under pressure. The Raptors should count themselves lucky that he only turned the ball over once in Game 5.
