Earlier this season people all around Celtics nation were talking about how much of a steal Marquis Daniels was. We were saying that signing Quis was quietly one of the best off-season moves made this past off-season. We all thought we knew what Quis brought to the team, but really he brought a whole lot more than we expected.
At the beginning of the season Quis was on a roll, he put up 17 points in back to back preseason games and was doing all the little things that we love to see a Celtic do. The regular season started up and Marquis started to settle into his role of around 20-25 minutes a game. Through the first seven games of the regular season Daniels averaged around seven points and 2.5 assists per game.
As of late we have started to see a slight decrease in Marquis’s production. In the past nine games Daniels has averaged 4.4 points and 2.2 assists per game, including a scoreless effort in a blowout win against Oklahoma City. This is not a dramatic decrease but a big enough one to question why his production has gone down.
