#Chargewatch: Where'd the charges go?

In losing Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger to injury, along with trading away Jason Collins, the Boston Celtics might have lost three of their best charge-takers last month. It clearly hasn't diminished a defense that continues to improve, but charge-taking is way down, with captain Paul Pierce and Avery Bradley left to carry the flickering torch. Despite playing in a mere 38 games, Rondo is still clinging to the top spot. A look at the season leaderboard, with help from data logged by Synergy Sports:

19 - Rajon Rondo

18 - Paul Pierce

15 - Jared Sullinger

13 - Avery Bradley

10 - Kevin Garnett, Jeff Green,

8 - Jason Collins

6 - Jason Terry

5 - Chris Wilcox

3 - Leandro Barbosa

2 - Courtney Lee, Brandon Bass

0 - DJ White, Fab Melo, Jordan Crawford
