Joakim Noah snared 17 rebounds including an NBA season-high 13 offensive boards in Sundays win.We moved the ball pretty good. When Derricks in the game, just with his driving ability and the balls moving, its a little easier to get offensive rebounds, said Noah, who, as charismatic as he can be, tends to shut down when asked about his own positive individual play. When Im playing well, I usually get a lot of offensive rebounds.Thibodeau expanded on the centers offensive-rebounding prowess: Well, I thought he was active and usually, when hes at his best and hes rebounding well, hes making the extra effort to go after the ball on every play and the more he goes, the more he gets. In many ways, rebounding is a lot like shooting. When Jos at his best, you can see it. He goes, he goes, he goes and all of a sudden, he gets into a rhythm and it seems like he gets every rebound. He might get three, four or five in a row and when hes like that, thats when hes a great player, so we need for him to do that more and more.
