Points on the Board

A few days ago on one of the Celtics board, someone was claiming that the Celtics lost Game 7, rather than the Lakers winning it. That claim was predicated on the Lakers' 32.5 percent shooting clip (which is, to be sure, almost epically awful). In my opinion, though, it's a little inconsistent to focus only on that and ignore the incredible job the Lakers did on their offensive glass--not just in raw boards (which was in part a reflection of their poor shooting), but also in offensive rebounding efficiency. This link is a bit of analysis I did in figuring out to what extent the Lakers' dominance on the boards contributed to overcoming their shortfall in shooting accuracy.
