    We saw a lot of offensive rebounds lost where the Magic simly reached over the shorter/softer Raptors backs and took it away. Marc and Serge are not elite rebounders by any stretch. Gasol will have to box out better and let kawhi/danny/spicy P get theirs.
    Actually, watching him through the last series, I thought Marc was doing an excellent job of boxing out and/or tapping the ball to his teammates. Just eye test though, no numbers so maybe I'm wrong.

          I had the same impression. What I noticed more though is that the rest of the team (particularly Kawhi, Green & Siakam) adjusted to the way they rebound when they're playing with Gasol. They started to realize Gasol will very rarely go for a two-hand board himself, but he will always have at least one arm on the opposing big, often both (a full box-out), leaving them (the wings) to fly-in for the board unemcumbered.

          In other words, they adjusted to the way Marc plays on the glass to improve the overall team-rebounding. If you watch carefully, when Ibaka is on the floor, they (the wings) approach the glass differently. It's exhibit A of enhanced team chemistry and knowing more about each other bit by bit since the all-star break.

              *facepalm* Brian Windhorst has a column up on ESPN where he's blaming the players for the confrontations with the refs AND he named Scott Foster as one of the best refs in the league

                  Raptors and Sunday afternoon games don't mesh well. They should look to win the first 3 games or it might be 2-2.

                    Raptors are in 10 of the top 12 3-man teams in the playoffs (minimum 100 minutes):

                      We have dismantled Magic while Green was not in his regular level in terms of shooting - by the way, he was great in defense - , now If Green regains his shooting touch, and Ibaka rebounds more, I think Sixers will be in major trouble.
                      The other major factor in this series is : protecting the homecourt. Another weak point in Sixers defence is their spacing, I mean if Siakam and Green keep moving from the wings to the basket and vice versa, we will have many easy layups.

                        The Raptors have been showing up well so far in the playoffs. Consider as well how poorly Detroit played, which would only have pumped up the numbers for the Bucks starters.
