PLAYERS: Fab MeloKris Joseph
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
The Red Claws were in action tonight as they hosted the Erie Bayhawks. The Red Claws didn't fare as well as their affiliate Celtics did as they lost to the Bayhawks 98-85. They were led by 19 points and 8 rebounds from DaJuan Summers. Scott VanderMeer filled in at center with Fab Melo still recuperating from the concussion and scored 9 points to go with 8 rebounds and 5 blocks. Kris Joseph, back with the Red Claws once again, may have been suffering from jet lag, or maybe whiplash, as he played 21 minutes off the bench and finished with 7 points on 3-9 shooting with 2 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal. The Red Claws will be back in action Saturday night as they host the Canton Charge at 7:00 PM ET. You can watch the game streamed live here, or check back on Celtics Green after the game for the video. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
