Serge Ibaka has reappeared in the NBA. The Toronto Raptors player returned last night after 10 break games for a sprained ankle and contributed 11 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds to victory against the Utah Jazz (130 – 110).
However, one of the most commented moments of the Spanish international was a lapse. Ibaka saw Fred VanVleet and did not hesitate to pass the ball, without realizing that his partner was on the bench. VanVleet himself assumed his guilt for standing at the edge of the court and wearing the same shirt he played with.
Seventh consecutive victory of the Raptors
The Toronto Raptors have extended their good streak, whichwhich already goes for seven consecutive victories, endorsing a tremendous beating to Indiana Pacers (130-110) with good performance by Marc Gasol (11 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds).
The final score did not reflect the tremendous superiority of the Canadian team, which relaxed in the second part aware that I was assured a new victory that keeps him second in the Eastern Conference (15-4) only behind Milwaukee Bucks (17-3).
In fact, the Raptors came to rest with a huge advantage of 40 points (77-37). It was a positive record in the entire history of the home team, that the first two quarters had never finished with such income, and negative in the history of the visitors, who were completely unarmed.
Pascal Siakam (35) and Fred VanVleet (21 and 11 assists) led the Toronto roll against an opponent where only Mike Conley (20) and Jeff Green (19) had some faith. As for the Spaniards, Gasol showed good aim in the perimeter (3/5 in triples) and Ibaka had a comfortable game to return to the tracks after overcoming his ankle injury.
