Oklahoma City Thunder: Report Card on Serge Ibaka

by Darnell Mayberry Published: June 19, 2014

Creating: C. Ibaka took another small step this season as a passer, an area he’s struggled with to say the least throughout his career. But he nearly doubled his assist total in 2013-14, good enough to finally average one assist. On the other hand, Ibaka has become more reliant on others creating for him. He was assisted on a career-high 79.8 percent of his field goals, up from 75.6 percent last year and 67.6 in 2011-12. While it’s great that he’s found a niche and blossomed into a reliable mid-range shooter out of the ball screen, Ibaka has plenty of room to grow in putting the ball on the floor and creating for himself. It’ll make him more of a threat and make the Thunder more difficult to defend.
