At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the Nets should be worried about their frontcourt rotation. DeAndre Jordan can snag some boards, and Blake Griffin has proven he can get a bucket or two, but neither of them have made a huge impact when it comes to stopping opponents when they get into the paint.
The lack of rebounding, made worse by the fact Jordan is seeing his minutes reduced due to his nonexistent offense, is evidenced by the fact that the Nets are 18th in the league in rebounding. With Time Lord Robert Williams ready to go in this series, the Nets’ interior skills will be stretched thin.
The Brooklyn Nets could lose games on the interior.
We know that the Nets might as well start with 65 points on the board thanks to Durant, Harden, and Irving, but that interior remains a problem despite the fact Griffin has started to play some solid basketball as the small-ball center they needed. Nicolas Claxton and Jeff Green will need to supplement them on the bench.
The nets have plenty of advantages, but they have one clear flaw that teams have been exploiting over and over again. Winning in the postseason is directly correlated to identifying the problems and coming up with solutions to make sure Boston gets ground into the dirt if they try to attack them.
