Rondo Sees No Point in Comparing Himself

To Rajon Rondo, every point guard is just as important as the next. Whether they are on a four-win team or a playoff contender, each one presents a challenge. So that explains why he seemed unphased by playing two of the hottest point guards in two games. In fact, he didn’t even realize that was on the schedule.
‘I don’t look at it like that,’ Rondo said before Friday’s game. ‘Every night I feel like at the point guard position is pretty tough no matter who we’re against. I didn’t know we played Utah next but last night I had Juan Dixon and tonight I have Chris Paul, so that’s just part of the NBA. I think the point guard is the hardest position to guard each night.’
Paul posted 20 points, 14 assists, and six rebounds while Rondo posted 10 points, six rebounds, and four assists in the Celtics 94-82 victory over the Hornets.
