In fact, Zubac interrupted the robbery. He noticed a ladder leading up to the balcony and then saw the two men bolt and jump a nearby fence. The Croatian quickly called the cops, who arrived on the scene not long after. At this point, Zubac was only aware of his watch being stolen but the damage certainly would’ve been worse if he didn’t come home and stop the situation.
The Clippers center has started all 13 games this season, averaging 9.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per night. He’s been a key part of LA’s success so far without Kawhi Leonard in the fold.
Police haven’t found the men who broke into Zubac’s house but the investigation is still ongoing. Definitely a bummer that he lost a Rolex because let’s be honest, those aren’t cheap.
The Clippers are back in action on Tuesday night against Gregg Popovich’s San Antonio Spurs at The Staples Center. They’ll be looking to bounce back from a loss to the impressive Chicago Bulls on Sunday, who beat them 100-90.
Let’s hope the burglars are identified and charged for their wrongdoings.
