Knicks vs Celtics: the rebound of New York can be decisive

The New York Knicks prepare for tonight’s game against the Boston Celtics. One of the strengths of the New York team is the dominant rebound.

With Randle back in formation, the Knicks have their strong inner presence to help deliver rebounds. Randle had 16 rebounds against Indiana, all defensive. The Knicks are 15th-ranked team in rebounds with 45.2 per game, but they haven’t had center Nerlens Noel for a while. Boston is in eighth place, averaging 46.

Boston exerts a solid effort to follow the shots, ranking 6th in offensive rebounds, something New York has sometimes lacked this season. With Randle and Mitchell Robinson in training, they will need to show 100% effort to control the scoreboards and give his team more opportunities.
