--leading the NBA in rebounds per 48 minutes (20.7), defensive rebounds per 48 minutes (14.5) and is second in offensive rebounds per 48 (6.2);

--leading the NBA in 20+ rebound games (6), including three games of 22, 22 and 24 in the last three weeks. Dwight Howard and Tyson Chandler have four each.
