Frontcourts are a very important part of the NBA. Forwards and centers can score, bring down rebounds, create new possessions and protect the hoop. A team with a frontcourt that plays well on both ends of the floor leads to a high seed in the playoffs. Of the top 10 most efficient frontcourts of 2012-13, nine made the postseason.
