(LOS ANGELES) – Ivica Zubac had the best game of his six-year NBA career on Sunday afternoon. Yet, the Los Angeles Clippers center was frustrated after picking up his sixth foul late in the fourth quarter. It's understandable, considering Zubac was one rebound away from having the fourth 30-point, 30-rebound game in the NBA since 1981. He finished with 31 points and 29 rebounds in the Clippers 114-100 win over the visiting Indiana Pacers. It was the third time since 1973-74 that a player has put up a 31 point, 29 rebound, 3 blocks line in a game. Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was the last to accomplish it on Feb. 3, 1978, at New Jersey. Norman Powell added 19 points in the win and Terance Mann had 14 points. Jalen Smith scored a career high 23 points for the Pacers, while Tyrese Haliburton had 15 points and T.J. McConnell had 14 points.
