Celtics Morning Joe: Rebounding key to beat the Heat

Posted by shawn cassidy on August 30, 2012 at 6:00 AM


I'm pretty sure we've covered this topic a few million times the past couple of months, but this is what ESPN's insider thinks.



"So the Celtics look like a much deeper team this season and they're younger, too. Boston projected to have an average age (weighted by projected minutes) under 30 for the first time since the 2008-09 season. They should be a bit more athletic and projected to be the top defensive team in the league.

The key to closing the gap with Miami in a possible head-to-head meeting will be for Boston to keep the scoreboard turning on a consistent basis. While the Celtics project a little better on the offense, they still won't be an elite team on that end of the floor, or even average. Boston does not emphasize offensive rebounding in the least, which is one of the items holding back its offensive efficiency."



Doc needs to fix this. He needs to think this over long and hard. The Celtics need to focus on offensive rebounding. Rebounding the ball brings championships. I believe the Celtics tweak the scheme a bit. Their rebounding on the offensive glass will improve. If it doesn't the Heat will beat us again. I feel strong about the Celtics, and I've made that clear all summer long. They will make the Heat play their style. That's my feelings on the matter. The Celtics have a lot of advantages over the Heat, and they must execute the advantages.




ESPN made their choice for the best in the East. The Heat win by a ton! The Heat got 96 votes,and the Celtics got 4.



I love how he finds it funny. Why should we be surprised?  I like it this way. I want the Celtics to work hard for the title. It will make it that much sweeter beating the Heat.

I don't even think the Heat are our competition. I think it's LA once again. We have to change our game plan viis a vis offensive rebounding. We have to hit the offensive glass more. When a Rondo attacks the basket, someone should be there for the offensive rebound. We don't have to attack the glass all the time. Just more.

We have to get through Miami first,and they need to get through OKC.

Yeah, sure. But I don't think the Heat or OKC are really our competition this year.

I think your over thinking LA a bit. They have much to show. Nash,and Kobe are not spring chickens,and Howard may not work out. Gasol has been a shell of himself. Artest has been falling fast as well. Their a bit better, but we shouldn't worry just yet.

Well, it's not that I'm worried. I mean I see your points, certainly. But I do think that they will be the main competitoin in the end

I see this as a 4 team race. LA,OKC,BOS,and Heat. May the best team win. The best player on each team will decide who wins it all.

That's probably a very accurate way to put it.
