The game is starting to slow down for Celtics rookie nguard JD Davison, who’s taking advantage of his opportunities on a two way contract with Boston’s G League team, the Maine Celtics.
In this second part of the newly formatted regular season in the G League, Davison is averaging 11.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 9.1 assists per game in 10 games this season.
Davison has 91 assists in 10 games, and 52 over his last four games. His 9.1 assists per game ranks second in the G League this season.
I’ve watched most of Maine’s games this season and can honestly say I’ve seen the progression in Davison’s game since Summer League. He has great size and instincts, and can get to the basket with ease.
Davison just needs to improve and sharpen his shooting, specifically from 3-point range, as he’s a 30 percent shooter in his first year. But if you ask me, I’d say Brad Stevens hit the jackpot with drafting Davison.
With Marcus Smart aging, the future of the point guard position will need to be addressed sooner than later. It’s possible Stevens is hoping Davison could be the guy to replace Smart in the next few years.
