Cory Joseph welcomes Serge Ibaka back to the playoffs with nasty poster dunk!

Published Add your comment

All the hype surrounding the Thunder-Spurs series thus far has been the inclusion or absence of Serge Ibaka, Cory Joseph has found the perfect way to welcome back the Thunder big man to the NBA playoffs.

Ibaka inspired the Oklahoma City Thunder to a game three victory over the visiting San Antonio Spurs, his offensive output and defensive presence reinvigorated the slumping home team and headlines were filled with praise for the Congolese star.

With all this talk surrounding the influence of Ibaka, the Spurs had to think of game-plan to combat the influence of the power forward.

One way to do so is to dunk the ball on the fearsome shot blocker and Cory Joseph did just that.

The spurs player splits the double team before collecting his dribble and heading to the rim, he explodes to the basket and is met by Ibaka on his ascent but not to be deterred, Joseph hammers down the posterizing dunk.

Unfortunately for Joseph and the Spurs however, the Thunder were already in control of game four and the Spurs point guard had only found himself on the floor due to the commanding lead Oklahoma City had built.
