Surprise, surprise - Ibaka returns and OKC win Game 3 against the Spurs

The Western Conference finals just got interesting.

CALL IT A comeback?

Serge Ibaka returned from what was supposed to be a season-ending calf injury to inspire the Oklahoma City Thunder and put the brakes on the San Antonio Spurs’ procession in the Western Conference finals.

Ibaka finished with 15 points, seven rebounds and four blocks as the Thunder took a crucial 106-97 win in Game 3.

“When you talk about a teammate, that’s everything you want in a teammate,” MVP Kevin Durant said.

I gained so much more respect for Serge for sacrificing himself for the team. Regardless of what happened tonight, that’s something you want beside you.’

Game four is in the early hours of Wednesday morning Irish time.
