Rebound Or Go Home

That’s what coach Lawrence Frank laid out for the Nets the past two days in preparing them for what has to be considered a must-win Game 3 on Saturday at the Continental Airlines Arena.

“f the rebounds don’t change, it’s going to be tough for us to win,” Frank said Friday after the Nets practiced for less than an hour.

“Too many times we are giving them free runs at the rim,” said Frank, noting Cleveland had 25 shots by the rim in Game 2 alone. “We have to get back to the mentality of hitting first, which we did through the bulk of the year.”

The Nets were fifth in the NBA in fewest offensive rebounds allowed this season.

Frank is also considering some lineup changes and might go small against the big front line of the Cavaliers.
