Serge Ibaka now leads the league in blocks per game after swatting five shots Friday against the Wolves.

Ibaka moved percentage points in front of Milwaukee's forward Larry Sanders, who the Thunder will face Saturday night.

Ibaka now averages an even three blocks. Sanders is averaging 2.984 blocks.

Ibaka is seeking to become the league's leading shot blocker for the second straight season. He averaged a career-high 3.65 blocks last year. In 2010-11, Ibaka ranked third in blocks per game with a 2.41 average but lead the league in total blocks with 198.

If Ibaka finishes with the most total blocked shots for this season, he would become the first player since Dikembe Mutombo (1994-98) to lead the league in total blocked shots for three consecutive seasons.
