Knicks, Robinson: “”Whoever wins the rebound is the one who wins the game”

For Mitchell Robinson, games are won based on missed shots rather than made shots.

“What this game boils down to is rebounding,” Robinson said late Wednesday. “Whoever wins the rebound game, nine out of 10 is the one who wins the game.”

The Knicks have used this formula for success during the regular season. They were at or near the top of the league in offensive efficiency in rebounding and total rebounding.

The trend largely continued against Cleveland. They dominated the Cavs on the boards during the five-game series.

But it was a little different against Miami.
