Celtics vs. Lakers: Since they last met
The Lakers can still rebound
The Lakers had 23 offensive rebounds in Game 7 (Pau Gasol had nine on his own), a big reason why they were able to beat the Celtics and win the title. Things haven't really changed. The Lakers are currently third in the NBA in rebounding differential at plus-3.87 per game, while the Celtics are smack dab in the middle in 15th. I know, I know, the Celtics' high shooting percentage hurts their rebounding stats. The point is, the Celtics need to rebound better. Period.
