has a Chucky Doll in his locker for extra motivation for games. The Chucky Doll also goes by "The Lakeshore Strangler" and Charles Lee Ray.

McDaniels was asked about the movie-themed doll that was spotted in his locker-room after a 89-84 loss to the Warriors.

"I use it for motivation," McDaniels told reporters on his birthday. "Gotta be savage like Chucky."

McDaniels has played defense so well in his rookie season that some fans would call it "Child's Play." He is averaging 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks per game.
