OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Thunder had a ‘resurgence’ Sunday night after welcoming Serge Ibaka back to the lineup.

After suffering what was believed to be a season-ending injury, Ibaka was sidelined for the first two games against San Antonio.

In Game 3, he hit his first five shots and finished the game with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks in the Thunder’s dominant 106-97 win.

According to USA Today, Serge’s sister teamed up with his girlfriend to nurse the Thunder superstar back to health.

When asked how he healed so fast, Keri Hilson told the newspaper, “God and ice.”

San Antonio still leads the series two games to one.

Game 4 is Tuesday night at 8 p.m. inside the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
