Rebounding

Last season, the Bulls were the No. 1 rebounding team in the league. Their rebound percentage was 53.9 percent, and they were grabbing 46.7 rebounds per game. Opponents got only 40 rebounds per game. Their offensive rebounding percentage was 32.6 percent, and the only other team above 30 percent was the Utah Jazz at 30.2 percent, still far below the Bulls.

This season the Bulls are averaging just 42.9 rebounds per game. Opponents are averaging 40.9 rebounds per game. One number is way down, the other is way up, and the differential has dropped from 6.7 to 2.0.

Soo what do you guys think...is this a serious issue or will the Bulls balance it out/win without it? Is it primarily just the loss of Asik?

Less time for Asik means more minutes for worse rebounders but also more minutes for guys who look for their shot instead of just concentrating on crashing the glass.

Re: Rebounding

Losing two Centers and one is averaging 12 RPG in only 30 MPG will hurt your rebounding.
