D-League: Red Claws win as Ainge looks on
Celtics President Danny Ainge visits as Chris Wright and Vitor Faverani lead Maine to a 111-100 win over Delaware.
By Kevin Thomas

Boston Celtics President Danny Ainge sat courtside at the Portland Expo for a second straight Maine Red Claws game Friday night. At times Ainge relaxed, talking to Red Claws President Bill Ryan Jr. Other times, like when Celtics players were on the court, Ainge leaned forward and focused on the play...

D-League: Red Claws reward sold-out crowd with a win
Maine gets ‘a really good team win’ over Erie.
By Kevin Thomas

Ask Vitor Faverani about his game and he shakes his head. “It’s not about my game,” he said. “This is a great team.” When Faverani calls the Maine Red Claws “great,” he may not be talking dynasty, but he does allude to a team that plays together. And when Maine plays like it did Saturday night, the results are usually good. The Red Claws beat the Erie BayHawks 108-103 before a sold-out Portland Expo crowd of 3,045...

D-League: Red Claws comeback falls short
Maine’s three-game winning streak ends with a 126-116 loss to the Delaware 87ers.
By Tom Cobourn

NEWARK, Del. — Frank Gaines engineered a spirited comeback but the Red Claws could never get over the hump Tuesday night, losing to the Delaware 87ers, 126-116. Gaines scored 15 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter, while big men Vitor Faverani and Chris Wright added 27 points apiece at the University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center. Maine, which had won the previous two games against the 87ers, had its three-game winning streak ended...

Red Claws on rebound with 113-105 win in Ohio
Maine’s win Thursday – its fourth in five games – ends a long losing streak on the road.
By Paul D. Bowker


CANTON, Ohio — When Chris Wright of the Maine Red Claws went vertical to snag a defensive rebound with less than two minutes left in Thursday’s game against the Canton Charge, teammate Daniel Orton jumped off the bench. He punched at the air with his fists in a celebratory manner. Red Claws Coach Mike Taylor, pacing the sidelines, slapped his hands together as he applauded the play...

Buzzer beater lifts 87ers over Maine Red Claws, 100-98

Red Claws count on Babb to keep order on the court
Chris Babb is not the top scorer but controls the flow of the game.
By Kevin Thomas

He has not been able to find a barbecue joint that meets his high standards. But Chris Babb will find the open player. Or the open shot. Or the loose ball. “I just try and do everything I can,” said Babb, a 6-foot-5 rookie guard for the Maine Red Claws, who return to the Portland Expo on Thursday night...

D-League: Red Claws lose to Canton
One night after beating the Charge, Maine falls flat in a 109-91 loss.
By Kevin Thomas

When the Boston Celtics promoted Chris Babb to the NBA, they gave him a chance to chase his dream. But the Celtics did not do their NBA D-League affiliate any favors. The Maine Red Claws not only miss the clutch 3-pointers Babb provided, they miss his defense and intensity. That became apparent Friday night as the Canton Charge routed the Red Claws 109-91 at the Portland Expo...

D-League: Red Claws’ Abdul Gaddy learning on the job
The rookie guard has rookie flaws, but his leadership and production are vastly improved.
By Kevin Thomas

When you watch the Maine Red Claws take to the Portland Expo floor, you watch pro basketball players dazzle with dunks and thrill with long three-point shots. You also watch them grow up. This Red Claws team is noted for its youth. Six of the nine players are rookies. They make mistakes. In Abdul Gaddy’s case, he made his share of errors and for a while lost his starting point guard job...

It pays for NBA prospects to play D-League
Salaries may be low, but a priceless fringe benefit is the attention they get in the U.S.
By Kevin Thomas

When Abdul Gaddy recorded a triple-double for the Maine Red Claws last Sunday, Coach Mike Taylor knew what the point guard’s performance meant. “It’s great for the attention,” Taylor said. “The Celtics have noticed beforehand and, with the triple-double, others will take notice.” Getting noticed. It is what the D-League is all about...

Red Claws turn it over to Mad Ants
Twenty-seven turnovers add up to another loss for Maine’s D-League team.
By Kevin Thomas

One of the best teams in the league added an NBA guard to its roster. Meanwhile the Maine Red Claws lost their starting point guard to an injury in the first half. Yet there was underdog Maine building a 10-point lead in the third quarter, 81-71. It didn’t last. The Fort Wayne Mad Ants rallied past the Red Claws for a 113-104 win Thursday night at the Portland Expo...
