Serge Ibaka challenged Joel Embiid at the rim in the second quarter of Game 4 Sunday, and it did not go well for him.
Embiid rose up and savagely blocked Ibaka’s attempt, then ran down the court and delivered a strike on an assist to Ben Simmons. Here’s the two-play sequence that highlights the big man’s well-rounded game.
Interestingly, Ibaka was involved in another big-time block just minutes earlier. Only that time, he was the one dishing out the cold rejection.
