    Question Mark Somehow we gotta fix the issue with offensive rebounds.

    If we controlled the boards then we only have one loss this year (Rockets game was just one of those games where nothing or no one would have helped).

    We have had so many great defensive sequences only not to grab the rebound. This is what made Larry Brown's Piston teams so tough, 24 seconds of tough D and then grabbing the rebound.

    Woody and staff need to come up with an incentive for this like they have done with turnovers.

    I have watched The Nets game (rooting against of course) and the only way they can beat us is by getting second chance points. I watched them play against Portland today and they struggled against them without Aldridge for much of the game but it was second chance points that allowed them to pull away...we are going to have to limit those tomorrow night and if we do we got this team by 13 or more, if not it will be a tighter game than it needs to be if not a loss!


    JR Ronnie and Kidd have been doing very well grabbing rebounds for us, but we need it to be from our post players...namely Tyson!

    Safe from the Rockets game our team defense has been as good the past couple of games as all season...it really is the offensive rebounds that are giving teams extra possessions and teams are knocking down 3's off of these boards


    Dallas Loss: Dallas 11 offensive rebounds Knicks 5

    Memphis Loss: Grizz 12 offensive boards Knicks 10


    Even today we gave up 10 in a game we win by 21

    My point is...this is where we are gonna take the next step. We don't need a trade to bring in a player to help with this, we got the personnel to do so but there needs to be an emphasis on this because if we control the boards we virtually unbeatable.

    Good thread. You're absolutely right, by the way, and things need to be ironed out. JR's been amazing for us on the glass, but Melo at the 4 has shown its toll for this team.

    The whole Camby absence has me bamboozled.

    Whatever the key is to adverting our most blaring weakness, it's got to happen against the Nets, for sure. I really don't wanna lose to this team. Melo is a huge mismatch for Humphries defensively, but Humphries will rip us apart on the boards. Reggie Evans will be a handful too.

    One thing I do know is that Amar'e Stoudemire is only likely to make things worse upon his return.

    We need to rotate Camby/Wallace/Chandler at the 4/5 and this will allow Carmelo to be added to the mix and attack the glass with 3 ferocious rebounders instead of 1 since Chandler and Carmelo seem to get boxed out at times

    That's basically it in a nutshell. Whilst Melo's a solid rebounder, he's better on the wing against a lot of opponents.

    I also think this is solved by Camby getting into game shape and STAT's return. But it is a concern moving forward and something to be monitored.
