Ibaka had five blocked shots in the second quarter, two in the third and one in the fourth period.

Ibaka is now averaging 3.07 blocks.

BUCKS BACKCOURT STRUGGLES

The Thunder's 10-point win at Milwaukee was largely a product of OKC limiting explosive Bucks guards Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis.

Milwaukee's two leading scorers combined to contribute just 17 points on 6-for-30 shooting. Ellis entered the game averaging 19.5 points. Jennings was averaging 17.8.

They combined for 11 assists, three rebounds and four turnovers.

“We always make it difficult,” said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. “We don't want guys to get easy looks. It's as simple as that. And great players like they are, they can make tough shots. Tonight, they didn't make their shots. That's partly because of us and partly because they missed some shots. We can't take credit for all of it.”
