Rebounding the Key to Warriors’ Success?
Posted By HOOPSWORLD On January 4, 2013 @ 6:50 am In All,Headlines,NBA Headlines | No Comments
The easiest way to quantify the Warriors’ collective rebound this season? Rebounding.
The Warriors came into 2012-13 as arguably the worst rebounding team in the NBA for three years running, and at least in terms of opponent differential, there was no “arguably” about it. They were 30th — dead last — for three consecutive seasons.
This year? They are second in rebound differential, and gaining on the front-running Minnesota Timberwolves, averaging 4.6 more rebounds per game than the competition as opposed to 6.6 fewer last season. That’s an incredible leap in glass-sweeping for a team that still lacks a monster rebounder.
