The Maine Red Claws, minus Kris Joseph who we saw last night in Boston, took on the LA Defenders in their home opener… and they did it wearing the uniforms of the Boston Celtics.
The Claws fell to the Defenders 97-94. Micah Downs struggled, shooting 5-14, but he still led Maine with 22 points. Fab Melo had 11 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 8 points on 3-9 shooting, but he also dealt with foul trouble.
LA got a decent contribution from former Celtics Orien Greene, who had 17 points despite his 5-17 shooting.
The game starts around the 14 minute mark of that video. Enjoy.
