Two of the best point guards playing in the Association, put up some pretty incredible numbers on Sunday that not only led to victories for both their teams; but showed just how valuable they are to their individual franchises. The man who has received the lion’s share of the headlines, has been New Jersey Nets All-Star guard Deron Williams, who scored 57 points in a victory over the Charlotte Bobcats by a final of 104-101. Williams not only scored the most points in his career in the Association; he shattered the record for most points scored in a game by a Nets player.
Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo was not as prolific in the scoring department as Williams was on Sunday, however he racked up his fourth triple-double of the campaign as the Celtics topped the New York Knicks 115-111 in overtime. The Boston starter’s final stats for the contest were mind-boggling; as he scored 18 points,dished off 20 assists, grabbed 17 boards, as well as having a block and a steal for the aftern...
