After a perfect first half from the floor, Serge Ibaka continued to dominate San Antonio in the third quarter.

Getting the ball in the corner, Ibaka attacked the hoop, cuffed the ball and rose to slam it home. After playing just 21 minutes in the Thunder's Game 1 loss and putting in an underwhelming performance in Game 2, since returning to Oklahoma City, Ibaka has found his groove in a big way.

Through the first three quarters, Ibaka has logged…minutes, scored…points and shot a perfect 9-for-9 from the floor. Despite this stunning offensive display from Ibaka (not just dunks, jumpers, too!), the Thunder went into the fourth quarter clinging to a four-point lead.

Also, consider this: Through three quarters, Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins and Nick Collison combined to score 43 points and shoot a ridiculous 19-for-22 from the floor. The fourth quarter might be a good time for Russell Westbrook and James Harden to get things going.
