Home openers for undefeated Red Claws tonight and Sunday

The NBA Development League Maine Red Claws, off to the best start (2-0) in their four-year history, are at home at the Portland Expo for the first time this season. The Los Angeles Defenders (1-0) will be in town this evening at 7 pm and the Sioux Falls Skyforce (1-0) are visiting on Sunday for a 1 pm game. The Defenders, coached by former NBA All-Star Reggie Theus, are affiliated with the Los Angles Lakers.
Four of Maine's five starters are averaging at least 19 points a game, led by 6" 7" rookie forward Kris Joseph (Syracuse) at 25.5. Joseph was the Boston Celtics' second-round pick (51st overall) in the 2012 NBA draft. 6"8" forward Chris Wright (21.0), 6"9" forward Micah Downs (20.5) and 6"3" guard Shelvin Mack (19.0) are the other top scorers.
2012-13 marks the 4th season that the Celtics have used the Maine Red Claws as their NBA Development League affiliate and the first under a new hybrid affiliation, in which Boston is Maine's sole NBA affiliate and has full control over the team's basketball operations. Red Claws Head Coach Mike Taylor is in his first year with the team.
