The Red Claws won the first of back to back games this weekend as they squeaked past the Springfield Armor 102-101. The Game was tight throughout with the Red Claws leading 53-52 at the half. They played to a stalemate in the 3rd quarter with each team scoring 27 to give the Red Claws an 80-79 lead going into the final frame. In the fourth quarter, the Armor evened the score at 85-85 with 7:54 to go. The Red Claws then went on a 10-3 run to put them up 98-88 with 3:52 remaining. After exchanging baskets for a while, the Armor went on an 8-0 run to tie the game at 100-100 with 35.1 seconds to go. After a pair of missed shot attempts by the Armor, Maine regained possession. With 3.9 seconds left, Shelvin Mack's jumper rimmed out but Fab Melo corralled the ball and finished the go-ahead layup with just 1.2 seconds remaining. A desperation jumper fell short for Springfield at the buzzer. Celtics camp invitee Micah Downs had another strong game with 26 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists. Point guard Shelvin Mack led the Red Claws with 26 points, 4 rebounds, 11 assists and 3 steals. Melo returned to the Red Claws from the Celtics yesterday after passing his concussion tests and came off the bench to score 6 points, including the game winner, to go with 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 blocks. You can watch the second half of the game, including Fab's game winner above. The Red Claws will be back in action tonight as they host the Armor with the game beginning at 7 pm.
