Glen Davis steps up and takes a charge from Russell Westbrook Sunday in Oklahoma City.It's the most thankless of NBA tasks (and one of the most challenging to perfect), but Glen Davis is now up to a eye-popping 14 charges taken this season through eight games (six times already he's drawn two charges in a game).

Here's a look at the Celtics' charge taken leaderboard (which Davis is dominating) and a look at the full rundown on infraction induction this season:
