NBA Playoffs: Strange Glasswork

Who was the leading rebounder in the seven-game series between the Thunder and Grizzlies?

It wasn’t Zach Randolph.  It wasn’t Marc Gasol.

Despite OKC decisively winning the battle of the glass (+5 Reb/game), Serge Ibaka only pulled down 9 boards/game.

The best rebounder in the series was Thunder guard Russell Westbrook with 10 rebs/game.

Oddly, the man preventing Memphis from getting absolutely blasted on the backboard was guard Tony Allen.  He tied Russ for the offensive rebounding lead in the series with 23.
