True to some extent but a lot of TO's go out of bounds so off hand I'd think teams don't get as many easy points off of TO's. They need to keep the rebounding differential close.

If we shoot 5% more than our average opponent, we will win the conference regardless of how we rebound. Of course, we won't, but the point is that rebounds are not a tell all stat, none is really. They all have the same weight and NO TEAM is top of the league in all categories.
5% is only about 10 points which isn't enough to cover for the FT disparity we've had with just Bosh going to the basket. Maybe DD changes that by going to the basket, maybe not.

At any rate they aren't likely to outshoot the opposition by 5% if they continue to give up 50+ pts in the paint most nights.

and most of rebounds are defensive, which very rarely result in easy points. And we actually are average in defensive rebounding, where we really suck is offensive rebounds, mostly because of how we play, with lots of perimeter players.

10pts extra would make easily us contenders ,that's exactly the difference between us and orlando last season. They were +6.5 and we were -3.5 ...
