JV had 2 or 3 tips to teammates. He didin't have nice stat sheet. But those tipped boards are ones that detroit couldn't get, which means two or three less possesions. Stuff like that adds up after a while, even if he doesn't get the stats to prove it
Good point. That's always been a question I had about rebounding stats. Who gets credited with the rebound if there is a purposeful tip to a teammate, who then secures the rebound? You see this a lot on the offensive glass especially.

Then there's the issue of a guy doing a great box-out to prevent the opposition from getting an otherwise easy rebound, thus allowing a teammate to get the rebound... almost like there could be a 'rebound assist' stat of somesort. haha I didn't mean to open any can of worms, I swear! lol
