    Steamer  will only get better. I think he is a average player who benifits with playing with talent. He has improved everywhere he goes.  He looked comfortable with the starters.  I like him better then Krytic

    Getting 50% or more of the rebounds will always work, whether there is only 70 total rebounds or 90 rebounds. Take care of the rebounds and we will be tough. 85 rebounds tonight and we got 43.

    In Response to Re: 40 Rebounds is Not a Secret : If the Celts only got 38 rebounds, like their season average the last 2 years, then it's not going to be 50% of 85.

    It would be if there were only 76 rebounds during the game.

    In Response to Re: 40 Rebounds is Not a Secret : Not really. If you minus 5 def rebs from the Celts and add it to the Wiz's off reb. totals then this game would have been totally different.  The point is the Celts limited the Wiz's 2nd chance points from offensive rebounds.  In 2008 and 2009 the Celts averaged 42 rebounds per game. If you missed a shot against the Celts back then, you're going to pay because you're not going to get many offensive rebounds against the Celts. It was one and done!

     Not  really?  What do you mean 50% is 50% unless you don't get 50%  Of course if you change the amount of rebounds and give the Wizards more rebounds then we don't get 50%. If we get 5 offensive rebounds tonight then we end up with 48 and they end up with 37.  Not rocket  science.  Yes the pt is we won the rebounding total no matter how many rebounds were there.  Doesn't make any difference what happened in 2008, 2009 or 1967.  Bottom line is we have to win or be close to even on rebounding each game no matter how many rebounds are there for the game.  Either that or we better be really hot or they better have a ton of turnovers.  You can bring thousands of ifs into the scenario.

    In Response to Re: 40 Rebounds is Not a Secret : I don't disagree with you about the % of rebounds. You are correct in saying that the Celts should get at least 50% of the rebounds every game. Here's the thing, no team in NBA history has won a championship averaging LESS THAN 40 rebounds per game. We came close in 2010 but in the end we still lost in Game 7 because of rebounding. We allowed the Lakers 23 offensive rebounds in that Game 7.

    Hey 40 rebounds is a good number to shoot for, no doubt.  For our games at our pace.  No NFL team has ever made the playoffs with the worst defense in the league either, let alone a superbowl.  Both the Packers and the Pats were ravaged on defense (2 worst) and they are probably the favorites to win.  As KG would say "anything is possible!!!!!!!"

    2 of the 4 wins vs. Orlando in 2010, no more than 38 boards 2 of the 4 wins vs. Cleveland in 2010, no more than 37 boards hmm... The point may be that when we don't win you can often check and see that we also dind't get 40 boards but literally 50% of our WINS the past 4 years..... in which we won a title and came injuries and a ref hose job 4th quarter from winning a 2nd... came with less than 40 rebounds

    We were closer to playing a up tempo game in 08 than any year since,  therefore more shots and more rebounds.  We just have to control the boards no matter how many are out there to be had.

    In Response to Re: 40 Rebounds is Not a Secret : Yes, because if we're getting 40 rebounds per game that means most of the time we're outrebounding our opponents. Right now our opponents are outrebounding us. Celts are just averaging 35.4 rpg in 5 games while are opponents are getting 38.20 per game.

      Have you checked the records of those teams that have averaged less than 40 rebounds per games? I think that you will find that many were lousy teams with rebounding just one of many areas of deficiency. To single out rebounding as a single reason for failure to me is not a valid point. As a matter of fact, any single stat. line category when viewed separately is not neccessarily a good indicator of success or failure,with one exception.  That one exception is a teams point differential between points scored and points allowed per game. This seems to sum up a teams strengths and weaknesses in all stat. lines and points the way to the best teams. By the way,since rebounds are a product of missed shots, its only been since the 1980's that averaging under 40 rebounds per game has been a factor. Prior to that missed shots per game were much higher then they are now resulting in a much higher rebounding per game average.
