Rebounds a struggle for Heat, despite hot start

MIAMI (AP) — It defies basketball logic. The Miami Heat have more wins than any team in the Eastern Conference so far this season, and the fewest rebounds of any team in the NBA.

Go figure.

With only reigning MVP LeBron James currently ranked among the NBA's top 30 rebounders in terms of average per game, and with a lineup that's outsized in nearly every outing, the Heat are clearly not the type of team that will dominate on the backboards.

They've already been outrebounded in games this season by margins of 29, 19, 17 and 15. Yet somehow, they've figured out ways to win each of those contests.

The Heat are averaging 39.1 rebounds per game, about 2.5 rebounds off last season's pace.
