The Bucks are also third in the league with a defensive rebounding percentage of 78, and an offensive percentage of 30.

Skiles says it helps that Andrew Bogut is back from his injuries.

He's averaging just over nine boards per game.

Forward Hakim Warrick is snagging just over six per contest and Ersan Ilyasova and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute have over five apiece.

Mbah a Moute says good defense helps because it puts players in a better position to get rebounds.

And he says the Bucks have made an extra effort on the offensive glass as well. The Bucks are 4-2 so far.

They'll host Golden State Saturday night.
