Here’s a simple concept: When you shoot a shot from further away, you shoot it with more force. Turns out you have to throw the ball harder to cover more distance. Physics, am I right? And the same way, if you throw it harder and miss, the caroms exit the rim and backboard with more force, and travel further.

That was all a long way of saying that teams that shoot more 3-pointers produce rebound opportunities further away than teams that shoot closer to the rim, and teams that shoot fewer 3-pointers produce more opportunities closer to the rim.

And in related news, Spurs center Jakob Poeltl has a Bet Quality of 10 (out of 10) in our FantasyLabs NBA Props Tool for his over/under of 5.5 rebounds against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.
