It's possible to get a defensive rebound when you're opponent missses a shot. Only then.
The Clippers missed 42 shots last night. We got 31 defensive rebounds. 74%
The Wizards missed 55 shots. The Clippers got 42 defensive rebounds. 76%
Is that what you mean by "can't get a **** defense rebound. Pretty pathetic." -- ?
How about on the offensive end of the court?
We got 12 offensive rebounds on our 55 misses. 22%
The Clippers got 10 offensive boards on their 42 misses: 24%
Had we gotten 1 more defensive rebound, we would have done as good a job on the defensive glass as they did. Had we gotten 1 more offensive board, we'd have done as good a job on the offensive glass as they did.
Had we turned those 2 extra boards into points at the rate that the Clips turned possessions into points, we would have scored an extra 3+ points. Only thing is... we lost by 25 points.
I think it's fair to conclude that rebounding was not our problem. We could have rebounded a little better, sure. But even had we rebounded a fair amount better, we'd have had zero chance to win the game.
I think it would be fair to conclude, instead, that our problem was letting them post a .628 efg% while putting them on the line 40 times.
