VIDEO: Serge Ibaka proves calf is fine by hitting first four shots in Game 3

May 25, 8:55 PM

It didn't take long for Serge Ibaka to prove that he can play through the pain in his left calf.

Specifically, it took all of 32 seconds.

With Game 3 of the Western Conference finals marking Ibaka's return from a calf injury that ruled him out of the series' first two contests, the power forward opened up the scoring on Sunday by hitting a jump shot from the top of the key.

Ibaka then proceeded to hit his next three shots, earning him the right to bust out a Michael-Jordan-like celebration.

Needless to say, Ibaka's teammates are happy to have him back on the court.
