Tyson Chandler had a lovely Game 4 for the Dallas Mavericks, picking up 13 points and 16 rebounds in the win over the Miami Heat. Nine of those rebounds came on the offensive end, giving Chandler 16 over the past two games. (That's a lot.) But Miami actually won the glass battle; the Heat picked up 15 offensive rebounds in 44 opportunities, while Dallas had 12 in 41.
Miami does it differently. While Chandler had all but three of the Mavericks' offensive boards, no Heat player had more than five; Joel Anthony picked up five in 28 minutes, Dwyane Wade had four and LeBron James grabbed three. That's another area Miami is more dangerous than you think: Wade and James rebound rather well for their positions. Chris Bosh is a strong defensive rebounder, typically, but Chandler was able to get inside and cause havoc.
Chandler's ability to keep up the pressure on Miami's defensive rebounding unit will be a key going forward; points have been so tough to come by in this series that any little breathing room is huge. Even in victory, Dallas' offensive efficiency was just 104 on Tuesday. Without those key offensive rebounds, it would have been lower, and the Heat would have had a great chance to win. You've got to exploit weaknesses at this level of competition, and it's clear Miami has trouble boxing out Chandler.
