Marshall: “Personally, I hate analytics. Maybe because I played, it drives me crazy. Even the plus-minus thing. At the end of the game you can have all zeroes in the stats and your plus-minus is plus-12 because the four around you have done a great job of getting the score up. It’s one of those things we don’t really look at, we just go out there and try to score the most points.”
