Celtics Blog: Rebounds Huge In Boston's Game 4 Win

SB Nation's Celtics Blog credits the rebounding as a big factor behind Boston's 96-89 Game 4 victory on Thursday night:

  • For the fourth consecutive game, the team that won the rebounding battle, won the game. The Celtics out-rebounded the Lakers in this one, 41-34. 16 of those 41 rebounds for Boston were of the offensive brand. 
  • You really can't say enough about Boston's bench in this one. Glen Davis, Nate Robinson, Tony Allen, and Rasheed Wallace teamed up 
  • Glen Davis was an absolute monster tonight. He put in 18 points and brought in five rebounds, but it was more about the manner in which he tallied his statistics. He was tenacious on both ends of the floor, with four of those five rebounds coming on the offensive end. Effort, effort, effort. And a little drool, for good measure. Can we start calling him Big Game Baby?
