Shhh (did the Boston Celtics Just Grab 14 Offensive Rebounds?)



I couldn't find a video that captured the putbacks by both Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger.

But I will say one thing, this is what happens when you start introducing young legs into a lineup.  During the 2011-12 NBA season the Boston Celtics were dead last in  the NBA in offensive rebounds, averaging 7.7 per game. The Bulls were first, with just shy of 14 per game.

Last year the C's were 80% reliant on the Old Fogies to win games.

I think the target this year should be 50% or less.

yep, young legs do wonders for a team.

Sully especially has a knack for offensive rebounds, similar to what Leon gave the Celtics in 2008.

I agree that the Celtics should rely on the older vets 50% or less. The less they play in the regular season, the more they will have left in the playoffs.
