Don't look now, but the Celtics D-League Affiliate has a chance to make their first post season appearance. Their playoff hopes center on tonight's game on the road vs the Erie Bayhawks. There are a couple of scenarios by which the Red Claws can make the playoffs.
Maine will make the playoffs for the first time if they can beat the BayHawks in tonight's final regular season game. They can also make the playoffs if they lose if Sioux Falls also loses to Iowa. If the Red Claws lose and Sioux Falls wins, Sioux Falls is in and the Red Claws miss out. It's also possible for the Red Claws to reach the No. 7 seed in the eight-team playoffsif they win their finale, Sioux Falls loses, and Fort Wayne also loses to Tulsa.
This will be the Red Claws 3rd straight game vs the BayHawks. They won 109-102 in a home game on March 28. They also won last night on the road 110-99. The game tonight is in Erie at 7:00 pm ET. You can watch the game streamed live here. With the Celtics off tonight, this might be a good time to catch Celtics rookie, Fab Melo in action. Fab is averaging 10.0 points(on 51.7% shooting),6.0 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks in 26 minutes per game for the Red Claws this season.
