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
