as a poor rebounding team they still won the championship though right?
The Miami Heat is in the bottom of the league in rebounding and the Pacers are near the top and have interior presence also playing great this year.
Both Hibbert and Paul George could have won defensive player of the year.
Defensively and rebound wise they are made to beat the Heat.
As is Memphis.
That's why I said Indiana and Memphis can beat the Heat this year.
Indiana also wasn't as good a defensive team last year and Hibbert nor George were playing at the level they are this year.
So yes they can beat the Heat, as can Memphis.
OKC, no, with or without Westbrook. Spurs, definitely not. Warriors, if they can beat the Spurs and Memphis ill give them a shot. But I think they'll beat the Spurs, not sure they'll beat Memphis. If OKC somehow makes it to the finals, they lose in 5 again if the Heat are there.
