Fab Melo has been recalled by the Boston Celtics. With the Maine Red Claws season ending after a heartbreaking 98-97 defeat to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Melo will be back with Boston for the final two games of the season and the playoffs.

Melo has appeared in 33 games for the Red Claws during the regular season and averaged 9.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and an D-League leading 3.1 blocks per game. He also appeared in two games for the Red Claws during the D-League playoffs against Rio Grande Valley and averaged 8.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 21.0 minutes per game.
Fab is unlikely to get much time on the court in the playoffs, but it'll be nice to have another big body for the final two games of the season. This will allow the Celtics to give extended rest to other players like Kevin Garnett, Brandon Bass and maybe even Jeff Green.
Here are a some clips from Fab's final game with the Maine Red Claws...the good...and the bad:
