Rajon Rondo returns to the rankings after being un-ranked for the first time this season. Alliteration aside, Chris Paul stays at number one despite missing a few games, and Russell Westbrook took control of the tight race to be second best.

Rank Prev Player Pts Ast Reb Stl To DRtg Win Shares TPGR Change
1 1 Chris Paul 17.0 14.3 3.3 2.3 3.0 104 0.300 40.22 0
Very small sample size for these rankings, but in the 4 games Paul was able to start, he was unstoppable.
2 4 Russell Westbrook 27.5 7.3 6.4 1.3 2.6 105 0.196 33.48 +2
Westbrook is leading all point guards in scoring, and has been taking good care of the ball.
3 6 Stephen Curry 23.8 7.5 2.5 2.5 1.8 113 0.156 29.55 +3
Curry missed a couple of games due to his often injured ankle, but it did not seem to hurt his play.
4 7 Jrue Holiday 25.4 9.2 3.8 2.4 4.0 109 0.097 29.42 +3
The Sixers are struggling, but Holiday is making his case for the All Star Game.
5 2 Tony Parker 22.1 7.3 1.9 1.0 3.9 105 0.210 26.33 -3
Parker’s turnovers have spiked in the last two weeks, but he is still playing well enough to stay in the top five.
6 N/A Damian Lillard 18.4 7.6 4.0 1.4 2.4 107 0.099 25.40 +5
The rookie of the year candidate is doing what he can to get Portland into the playoffs.
7 N/A Rajon Rondo 13.7 10.2 4.8 1.7 4.5 102 0.110 24.64 +4
Rondo returns to the rankings, but has been turning the ball over at an alarming rate.
8 8 Jameer Nelson 18.1 8.4 3.0 1.6 2.1 116 0.098 24.30 0
Nelson held onto eighth by averaging 18 and eight. Are we really living in a world where he is consistently the eighth best point guard?
9 3 Greivis Vasquez 15.1 9.9 4.7 1.3 3.9 106 0.068 24.06 -6
Vasquez had jumped six spots to grab third last time, but fell back again to ninth.
10 10 Deron Williams 19.3 7.2 2.7 0.3 2.5 111 0.143 23.87 0
Brooklyn fans must be happy with their team, but Deron Williams is still under-performing.
