Having filled in for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Serge Ibaka played well in his Milwaukee Bucks debut
With Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting out after suffering an ankle injury in last Thursday’s loss to the Suns, the Bucks needed a replacement. Head coach Mike Budenholzer called upon the newly acquired Serge Ibaka to fill in as the starter in his debut game with the Bucks, and the veteran big man played rather well. Once Antetokounmpo returns to the fold, the Bucks will ask Ibaka to let it fly from out there more often than not, surely more than the one 3-point attempt he shot versus the Blazers.
While his numbers offensively did not jump off the page, the Bucks did not bring Ibaka in to score the basketball.
