Lester and Billy Own The D-League

Green Street " Hudson impressive in NBDL debut

Celtics rookie Lester Hudson scored a game-high 25 points in his NBDL debut as the Maine Red Claws defeated the Erie BayHawks, 81-77, on Wednesday night.

Hudson, who was assigned to the NBA Development League on Tuesday, premiered with an impressive stat line: 8-19 FG, 4-9 3PG, 5-6 FT, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 block. He had previously scored a total of 11 points in 13 games with the Cs. Hudson was assisted by fellow Celtic Bill Walker. The forward scored 16 points off of 7-for-18 shooting and grabbed six boards. Walker entered the game leading the Red Claws in scoring and rebounding.

Just as the Celtics are riding a winning streak, the Red Claws have won their last six games.

Nice to know that the youngsters are making the best of their time in the minors.  Of course you could say that they should be dominating a level down, but it is always nice to hear that they are taking their opportunity seriously and putting in the work and effort it takes to make themselves better and get good experience up in Maine.

By the way, this seems like a good place to remind everyone that we created a forum in the message boards specifically for the Red Claws and D-League discussion.  Check it out.
