PORTLAND - While Boston played before a boisterous home crowd Wednesday night, two Celtics sweated through practice at an empty Portland Expo.

Boston sent 7-foot center Fab Melo and 6-7 small forward Kris Joseph to Portland to join the Maine Red Claws.

AUBURN - Kris Joseph got the opening tip, dribbled, waited, then sent a lob to the hoop. A soaring Chris Wright caught it and finished the alley-oop slam.

Joseph was one of the main attractions as the Maine Red Claws played an intrasquad scrimmage Saturday night at Edward Little High. He was one of the three leading scorers with 19 points, with Micah Downs and Wright.
