The Oklahoma City Thunder were desperate to get back to winning form, and Serge Ibaka provided that form in Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs; the Thunder defeated the Spurs 106-97. Ibaka scored 15 points, blocked 4 shots, and had 7 rebounds; 6 of 7 shots made, 3-4 FT made.

Ibaka‘s physical presence in the paint prevented the Spurs from shooting well from the field (39.6%), and Ibaka‘s 4 blocks showed his paint presence. Nick Collison and Thabo Sefolosha were benched in favor of Reggie Jackson and Stephen Adams for the Thunder.

Kevin Durant finished with 25 points (8-for-19 shooting) and 10 rebounds while Russell Westbrook had 26 points (8-for-19 shooting), 8 rebounds and 7 assists.
