Yea, can't say I agree with the team not being that bad. Currently the Clippers are 24th in DRB%. The raw numbers will look fine because this team plays at a higher pace this year and therefore there are more rebound opportunities, but that means little in an actual game.
I think about two weeks ago the team was 27th (maybe, I'm not sure), now the team is 24th, so that is an improvement, but still below average. The season DRB% is 73.1%. Here are the numbers the past few games:
Warriors - 86.4%
Suns - 71.7%
Hawks - 73.3%
Lakers - 92.3%
Suns - 66.0%
Pelicans - 76.6% (Granger didn't play)
Rockets - 70.0% (Granger didn't play)
Not sure this is enough to say it is gone. 3/7 games were below the season DRB% and one (Hawks) was right at it. I think we'll need a bit more to be able to make any conclusion, but big bodies and length are theoretically helpful. Of course the main problem is a giant outlier like the Lakers game, so we'll see the next couple of games since our sample with Granger is 5 games.
