Red Claws are playing an important game right now as far as playoff aspirations go.
Win both and they're in. Win one and their fate will lie in someone else's hands.
Fab looking good from the start it seems. Very nice to see him showing after the no shows in the past few weeks. I'm thinking the D-League playoffs would bring a similar intensity to some NBA games.
4 pts, 1 alley oop interception, 2 rebounds (one offensive), almost an asssist...just nice presence in only a little under minutes. Hope this keeps up.
So... Maine watchers... what's wrong with Fab? His stats are beyond terrible this week, capped by an 18 minute, 6 foul, 4 rebound performance on Saturday.
For those of you going to Red Claws games, are you starting to give up on Fab? Is he hurt?
Haven't been on this thread for ages. Seems, from the bits and pieces I've been watching, they have changed their schemes to be less Fab-centric. This is, of course, what he should expect in the big leagues and is probably beneficial.
Edit: also, Fab's teammates are pretty mediocre in my opinion, even for D-League standards. Fab's game is largely complimentary which hurts when the rest of the team are just shot jackers.Update
Holy smokes Fab is lighting it up. 8 points, 3 boards - make that 4. 1 steal. And 4/4 from the field scoring a variety of ways.Update
Fab sits after an early dominance. Red Claws leading early and leading big. May not see Fab much today.Update
End of the quarter and Melo botches the Erie's final possession.
Here's what Fab does that's impressive but doesn't show up on the stat sheet: he just stayed with a speeding guard (albeit a d-league guard) and stopped the penetration.
