PORTLAND, Maine � Boston Celtics rookie Fab Melo recorded a triple-double and set a new NBA Development League record for blocked shots in a game with 14, but it was not enough as the Erie BayHawks (6-4) shot down the first-place Red Claws, 85-78.
The fourth quarter gave the Portland crowd plenty to cheer for as Melo completed his triple-double, the third in team history, with 15 points, 16 rebounds and an NBADL record 14 blocks.
Not a bad effort at all by Melo, certainly a good sign for the future from both a defensive and offensive standpoint.
Melo is a nice player with raw talent but with the ability to be a defensive force right away. I would love to see him playing more in the NBDL to develop his general skills and receive the call up. Great work man, i would love if you do a research of the other rookies.
Would love to do a bit more research, but I'm gonna be traveling over Asia for the next two months so ill be without Internet access for a while. Can't wait to get back and catch up on everything .
