Serge Ibaka Called the Houston Rockets ‘Selfish’

The OKC Thunder absolutely smothered the Houston Rockets in a 120-91 Game 1 blowout. According to Serge Ibaka, the Rockets’ occasional selfishness doomed them in the series opener. Per the Houston Chronicle: “While the Rockets studied video and worked to make corrections, Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka offered a rapid evaluation of what happened to the Rockets’ offense when the Thunder switched on high screens throughout Sunday’s blowout. ‘They can be kind of selfish,’ Ibaka said. ‘You know, when you switch against a team like them that’s going to go one-on-one, that’s good for us. For them, they are going to take some tough shots, some contested shots. That’s something we want, that we’re looking for.’ Rockets coach Kevin McHale said Sunday that when the Thunder switched, the Rockets too often tried to go one-on-one to score, rather than driving and then continuing to move the ball. The Rockets made 36.3 percent of their shots Sunday. Their 17 assists were just three more than their fewest of the season.”
