Charlotte Hornets vs Dallas Mavericks
DeAndre is the second top rebounder in the league with 14.2 per game (3.1 offensive). The Hornets will miss their starting Center Zeller and he is expected to be replaced by Hernangomez who is a more athletic player with a better shot but also likes to keep a distance from the basket. Whether the Hornets will try to stretch the court with Hernangomez and Kaminsky or not, DeAndre won't be drawn away from the basket and one of his main tasks in defense will be to collect the easy rebounds and prevent the Hornets from having extra scoring chances which is one their main strengths (rank 7th in the league). The Hornets, who already have issues with offensive rebounds allowed (10.5 per game), will have trouble to match DeAndre today and he should grab quite a few of those as well.
DeAndre who averages 31.4 minutes per game should have an easy task grabbing at least 14 of those 54 rebounds the Hornets allow on average per game.
