VIDEO: Ivica Zubac takes Pascal Siakam’s soul with massive poster dunk
Los Angeles Clippers big man Ivica Zubac posterized Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam on Tuesday. Zubac, who has been tremendous for the Clippers this season, rose up and dunked on Siakam’s face with no hesitation whatsoever.
It was arguably the highlight of the evening as the Clippers went on to defeat the Raptors, 105-100.

Zubac had eight points and eight rebounds in 30 minutes. Despite mediocre numbers, he displayed why he might eventually permanently replace Serge Ibaka in the starting unit. His interior presence has been big for the Clippers as he does his damage by fighting for rebounds and scoring gimmie buckets.
The Clippers already clinched a spot in the NBA Playoffs but they badly needed Tuesday’s win to break a three-game losing skid. Sitting at fourth place in the Western Conference, there’s a huge chance that they could face the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the postseason.
Thankfully for the Clippers, Kawhi Leonard and Patrick Beverely have returned to the lineup. Except for the three straight losses, the Clippers were raking up wins behind key players like Zubac, Luke Kennard, Reggie Jackson, and of course, All-Star forward Paul George.
The Clippers have a deeper roster this year to make a run for the championship. They added Rajon Rondo, a floor general and vocal leader who can significantly help them, especially in the NBA Playoffs. Their goal now, aside from winning as many games as they can, is to get the players as healthy as possible, including Ivica Zubac.
