Despite the storm, Red Claws play
About 300 people showed up in the severe snowstorm to watch the Maine Red Claws Friday night.
Bakersfield was in town, and the NBA D-League said the game must be played. So despite being 90% empty, a game was played at the Portland Expo.
Only 3 members of the dance team showed up for the game, and the halftime entertainment was cancelled.
In the end, the Red Claws lost to Bakersfield, 104-94. Fab Melo returned to the team after scoring his first NBA points in Boston Thursday night.
Kris Joseph also played his first game back in Portland, since the Red Claws re-acquired him. Joseph scored 23 points in the loss.
