On Sunday night, the Western Conference Finals roll on as the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs take their action to the Chesapeake Bay Arena for Game 3.
While big man Serge Ibaka would certainly like to be on the court for Oklahoma City, he will not buy into the notion that him missing action has cost his team to fall into an early two-game hole.
“I’ve been hearing a lot of people saying my team lost two games because I was out,” Ibaka said, via ESPN.com.
“That’s not true. I believe in my guys. I believe in my teammates. They can be better with me or without me. It’s no excuse because Serge Ibaka was not there. Just San Antonio, the first two games, they played better basketball.”
If the Thunder can bounce back on their home court Sunday, then there will be no concerns about how everything went down during the first two games of the series.
However, if Oklahoma City finds themselves once again on the losing end, they will be on the ropes and in serious danger of finding themselves watching the NBA Finals from the comfort of their own homes.
