Hornets coach Byron Scott just validated what Rajon Rondo and his agent are trying to turn into a lucrative contract extension: Rondo is among the NBA's top five point guards.

"Because of the playoff series that he had last year and the way he started off this season, I think most people in this league right now have to consider him one of the top five or six point guards. For [Chris Paul] that's a challenge."

Another challenge the Hornets face? Playing the Celtics tonight in Boston.

"There's a few reasons [the Celtics are good]," said Scott. "Paul Pierce is one of them, Kevin Garnett's another. They've just got a great basketball team. The last couple seasons they've been very successful at home. They're tough to beat here."
