#Chargewatch: Top takers lost for season

By Chris Forsberg

The Boston Celtics didn't just lose two starters last week when both Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger were diagnosed with season-ending ailments, they also lost their two top charge-takers on the team. Avery Bradley picked up some of the slack on Sunday, absorbing a crunch-time charge to help the Celtics hang on against the Clippers. Here's a look at this season's updated charge-taking leaderboard, with help from data logged by Synergy Sports:

19 - Rajon Rondo
15 - Jared Sullinger
9 - Paul Pierce
7 - Kevin Garnett
6 - Jason Terry, Jason Collins
5 - Avery Bradley, Jeff Green
3 - Chris Wilcox
2 - Leandro Barbosa, Brandon Bass
1 - Courtney Lee
