|Will Sullinger be the Celts best rebounder?|
- Rookie Jared Sullinger led the C's in rebounding, averaging 7 per game. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict he'll lead the team during the regular season as well. He also pulled down 20 offensive rebounds in 8 games, nearly a third of the team's total (66), and more than double the next highest player (fellow rookie Kris Joseph with 9). While this is definitely an impressive stat, I'm going to chalk it up mostly to the youthful exuberance. Offensive boards are all about effort, and obviously the rookies care more and try harder during the preseason than veterans do; Kevin Garnett had just one offensive rebound.
- Rondo led the Celtics in minutes played, which is almost certain to happen during the season as well. But second on the team was Jeff Green, a bit of a surprise.
- The same was also true for scoring; Pierce topped the C's by averaging 15 points a game (also likely to continue in the regular season), while Green was second at 13.9 PPG. Hopefully the minutes and scoring are an indication of big things to come from Green when the games actually start counting next week.
