That is how you protect the rim.

There aren’t many guys in the league who would even try to block a Dwight Howard dunk, let alone pull it off, but Serge Ibaka did Tuesday night (and got Earl Clark’s follow up, too).

The Thunder beat the Lakers and I don’t know that there is some great takeaway from the game we didn’t already know — the Lakers are improved but the Thunder are still better — however we were treated to some spectacular plays and this was at the top of the list.
