No, both the offensive and defensive teams can get a rebound on either basket. The defensive team tends to have better positioning, so defensive rebounds tend to be more common.

What is a team rebound in basketball?

A team rebound is awarded when no individual secures the rebound of a missed shot. The statistic has little meaning -- its existence is primarily to ensure that the total number of rebounds equals the total number of missed shots, despite the fact that some shots don't have what one would normally consider a rebound. Some examples: * The offensive team gets a team rebound when one of its players misses a shot at the buzzer. * The defense gets a team rebound when a missed shot goes out of bounds without touching a player, and when the last free throw attempt in a sequence misses the rim. * Either team can get credit for a team rebound when a missed shot goes out of bounds off a member of the other team.
