Talk about the upcoming Warriors game here
We have to go back to Warriors basketball. In recent games, we do not look like a team who is the 4th best at rebounding. Teams are crushing us on the offensive glass and we can't overcome the 2nd chance points. We gotta get a body on people if we want to win.
I think that a reason for that are Harrison and Ezeli playing less minutes. Ezeli is making room for Lee to grab rebounds, if he is not taking them himself, and Harrison is good rebounder at SF, better than RJ. At least, he can box out some players.
Barnes may not yet be scoring big, but the man does rebound well for a SF and I also think that less time for him and Ezeli is not a good think for the team. Too much small ball does not work. The team's success this season corresponds well to their much improved rebounding.
Having watched a lot of recent Raptor games I can confidently say this is not a guaranteed win. Raptors have been very good since Bargani stopped starting. If they had just benched him to start the season they'd be in the playoff picture right now. Raptors are a very enjoyable team to watch now.
