Micah Downs continues to put up points for the Maine Red Claws. He scored 27 points last night on 8-17 shooting and also grabbed 9 rebounds to lead the Claws to a 113-111 win over the Erie Bayhawks. Shelvin Mack put up 23… but that was primarily due to shooting 14-14 from the line. He was 4-14 from the field.
Fab Melo continues to struggle, yet show brief flashes of what he can do defensively. He blocked 3 shots in 26 minutes… while also adding 6 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists.
Downs is making a strong case for at least a 10 day contract. Those can’t be signed until next month… but I wouldn’t be shocked to see him at least suit up at the NBA level this season.
I hope you’re enjoying these full Red Claws games. It’s a good chance to see some of the guys who are working hard to achieve their dreams.
