Red Claws versus Swarm, January 28, 2017

Maine climbed to 19-11 with an easy 111-98 victory over Greensboro (9-20) in this Saturday night game with few dramatic moments. Marcus Georges-Hunt (27 points) and Ryan Kelly (22 points) led the Claws, with the latter delivering on a late-game alley-oop that brought the evening's loudest cheer. We had a chance to see Celtics rookie Demetrius Jackson (14 points), who has bounced between Boston and Portland all season and looked a little disoriented.

Greensboro nipped Maine on Friday night, but was never close in this one. Aaron Harrison (22 points) and Mike Tobey (10 points) were scoring leaders and Xavier Munford showed above-average spark. Overall, it looked like the team needed a charge but never amped up.
