Maine attraction: Joseph a scrimmage star

The Maine Red Claws held an intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday night and Celtics rookies Kris Joseph and Fab Melo had solid debuts. From the Portland Press Herald:

Joseph was one of the main attractions as the Maine Red Claws played an intrasquad scrimmage Saturday night at Edward Little High. He was one of the three leading scorers with 19 points, with Micah Downs and Wright.

"It was cool," said Joseph, who got little playing time with Boston. "I haven't played up and down like this in a while."

Joseph, a 6-foot-7 forward, and 7-foot center Fab Melo are the two Celtics players on this Red Claws team. Melo scored 15 and had at least five blocks.
