Success! Rebounding Improves

Since we bludgeoned the Spencer Hawes-Carl Landry and Spencer Hawes-Jason Thompson lines in terms of rebounding anti-prowess in Sunday's Oklahoma City game, we feel a duty to update on how things went in Portland.

These are each big man duo's defensive rebounds, defensive rebound opportunities and defensive rebound percentages.

Hawes-Landry       20-27, 74%
Thompson-May  7-8, 88%
Thompson-Landry  3-6, 50%
Hawes-Thompson  1-1, 100%

Lineups featuring Hawes and Landry together did much better than on Sunday, grabbing 20 of 27 potential defensive rebounds, just about a league average figure. Lineups featuring Thompson and Landry together were less good (1-4 in the first half, 2-2 in the second). The late third-early fourth lineup featuring Thompson and Sean May was fantastic on the defensive boards, with seven rebounds in eight opportunities. Hawes and Thompson barely played together, but their lineup did grab its single defensive rebound opp.

Let's add this to Sunday's lineup to see what we're working with.


Hawes-Landry  33-50, 66%
Thompson-Landry  16-24, 67%
Thompson-May  7-8, 88%
Hawes-Thompson 2-6, 33%

Basically, the Landry lineups flipped from this game. Obviously, as Landry is an integral part of the team going forward, this needs further investigation. As time allows, I'll look back at Landry's tenure here, and keep tabs going forward.
