Clippers center Ivica Zubac‘s Los Angeles area home was burglarized Friday night … and the 7-foot tall big man interrupted the robbery, TMZ Sports has learned.
Unfortunately, the 2 assailants were able to escape … according to our law enforcement sources.
The 24-year-old, 7-foot tall Croatian hoops player — who’s averaging nearly 10 points and 8 boards a game with LAC — left his home around 8 PM Friday night … before returning around midnight.
When he arrived back at the crib, Zubac — the 32nd overall pick of the Lakers in 2016 — noticed a ladder was placed against his home, leading to a second-floor balcony.
Ivica then witnessed two men bolt from the area, hopping a fence and booking it from the property.
The big man called the police … and the cops responded and cleared the home, ensuring there were no more bad guys inside.
We’re told Zubac’s place — which was locked and had a working alarm system — was ransacked and at least one piece of expensive jewelry, a Rolex watch worth over $20K was gone.
Police are currently investigating.
