Serge Ibaka misses bunny at the buzzer in Thunder loss (VIDEO)

Apr 30, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

Oklahoma City had its chances.

There will be a Game 5 after the Rockets beat the Thunder Monday night (although that’s likely where it ends). But the Thunder had their chance at a sweep, it just seems like the final play became a scramble of lost opportunities like much of the game was for them. Kevin Durant wanted to take a game winning three but couldn’t get a clean look away from Francisco Garcia, Reggie Jackson tried to drive and make something happen but Omer Asik was a brick wall in his way, and in the end Serge Ibaka still had a chance to send the game to overtime with an open lay-up off the rebound.

And he missed the bunny.

There will be other chances, the Thunder will win this series. But they missed this one.

Thanks to The Point Forward for the video.
