Box-out on defense
As one would imagine a Gregg Popovich team to be, the Spurs are well-coached. And playing to the strength of this current roster, they crash the offensive glass hard.
Per NBA.com, the Spurs rank ninth in the league in offensive rebound rate, snagging 28.3% of their missed field goals.
This will be a tall task for a Bulls team that has to rely on gang-rebounding to out-rebound taller squads. What this does mean though, if Chicago contests every San Antonio shot, the numbers say there should be plenty of misses.
If Chicago focuses on boxing out, then they should be able to turn plenty of Spurs' misses into opportunities for transition offense.
