That's because instead of going about 2,400 miles between Boston and Utah… they'll be going about 100 miles north to Portland, Maine.  Today, the Maine Red Claws announced, officially, that they'll be affiliated with the Celtics and the Charlotte Bobcats.  I think this is great news because it allows fans much easier access to some [...]
