NBA Point Guard Rivalry
Posted by Nancy on November 25, 2010
No one doubts that there are some very elite players who make up the roster of point guards in the NBA this year. Having a talented, efficient and energized point guard is critical to the success of a team and those who excel at this particular post are in high demand. The Utah Jazz are extremely fortunate in having Deron Williams on their squad as he is considered by many to be the top guard in the league. Another top player in the point position is Chris Paul who plays for the New Orleans Hornets. In last night’s match-up against these two teams, it was the Utah Jazz who came out on top with a score of 105-87. It was a well-played game by both teams and a great victory for the Jazz who are earning a reputation of being very tough on the leading teams in the league, one of which is the Hornets who came into this game with an 11-2 record.
In the point guard rivalry it was once again Deron Williams who emerged as the winner with stats for the night of 26 points and 11 assists against Paul’s 17 points and 10 assists. It’s obvious that Chris Paul is a dynamic player but Jazz fans are thrilled that it’s a Jazz basketball uniform that Deron Williams wears and that when he throws up one of his many 3-pointers, that it is aiming toward the Utah Jazz basketball backboard rather than that of some other NBA team.
For those who are keeping track of this point guard rivalry, at this point in their history Deron is up 12-3 on match-ups against Chris Paul. That’s great news for Jazz fans.
