The Maine Red Claws, the NBA D-League affiliate of the Boston Celtics and Charlotte Bobcats, will open up the 2010-2011 season at home at the Portland Expo this Friday, November 19, 2010, at 7pm. There are still tickets available, though you'll want to act quick as EVERY home game last year during their inaugural season was a sell out.
The Red Claws will take on the Austin Toros (baby brothers to the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA) for a two game weekend series with another game on Saturday, November 20. The home opener promises to be a real entertainer as the Rim Rockers, a slam dunk team who has entertained many NBA crowds will make a half time appearance. Yes, and the Lady Red Claws Dance Team is back as well folks...
Fans should also note that they'll receive a rally towel thanks to The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein to help stir up some excitement in the Portland Expo. Careful where you swing the towel or someone may end up calling 1-800-CALL-JOE on you after the game.
In all seriousness though, the Maine Red Claws deserve the recognition for bringing professional basketball back to Portland, Maine, and for giving back to the community through many different facets. Hats off to the Maine Red Claws and we wish them all the best.
