There’s no nice way to put it, but the Boston Celtics are a horrendous rebounding team.
As the 29th-ranked rebounding squad in the Association, the Celtics only managed to grab 39.3 boards per contest. Kevin Garnett led the way with an average of just 7.8, and Paul Pierce was next in line at 6.3.nike 2012 jerseys, Nike nfl jerseys cheap
During the postseason, Garnett showed that he still has it in him to own the glass. He averaged 13.7 rebounds during the series against the New York Knicks, but he’s going to need help, as he’ll be a year older and a year closer to retirement in 2014.
Boston has Jared Sullinger returning to the lineup in 2013-14, which will help its cause, but standing pat and hoping the second-year player can save the day would be a poor approach for a team fighting the age department.
