Following Stephen Curry's ridiculous 54-point outburst at Madison Square Garden, now seems like as good a time as any to update the NBA point guard rankings.
The ground rules are simple: these rankings consider a player's offensive capabilities right alongside his defensive skills. There are two ends to the court, so before everyone gets all up in arms about the exclusion of Damian Lillard from the top 10, consider the fact that he is—by all accounts—a horrible defender.
And it won't be all about the numbers. Statistics matter, but intangibles will count too. If a player has the ability to control things like the pace of the game or the skill to thrive in bad situations, he'll be rewarded here.
Injured players don't qualify either, so Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose won't feature on this list.
Finally, these rankings consider each point guard's entire body of work for the 2012-13 season, but they do weigh recent weeks more heavily. If a good player has kicked his game up a notch or two of late, expect that to help his ranking.
With the season winding down, it's time to see how the league's top 10 points guards stack up.
