Rebounding on mend for the Celtics

Sullinger, Bass give Celtics a lift

The Celtics’ power forward position is essentially a two-man job shared by Brandon Bass and Jared Sullinger. They are both undersized for the position, making rebounding more difficult against the game’s taller forwards.

That doesn’t help the Celtics’ quest to improve their rebounding. They rank last in the NBA in rebounding and last in rebounding differential, meaning not only do they lose the battle under the boards most nights, they lose it by a lot.
