08:09 AM ET 03.05 | Yes, Kobe Bryant saw Serge Ibaka's below-the-belt hit Sunday on Blake Griffin, and he thought a different response was in order. "I probably would have smacked [Ibaka] in the mouth," Bryant said after the Los Angeles Lakers practiced Monday. "I would have dealt with the pain after." The Lakers head on the road to play Ibaka and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday. The NBA has not stated whether Ibaka, who received a flagrant foul 1 for his punch of Griffin, will be suspended. Ibaka was not ejected and stayed in the game Sunday as the Thunder held on to beat Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers, 108-104. "It doesn't matter," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said when asked if he would plan for Ibaka to play.
