It was hard to watch for me. I don't know about you. But Melo looked akward during garbage time during the Lakers game. He's a work in progress, and if he can record 14 blocks in one game in the D-League. I have some hope for the kid. Although he looked akward in my eyes. He did score his first basket ever.
"It felt good. It felt good to get the ball in," Melo said of his first career basket. "My teammates were trying to get me involved on the play, so it felt really good."
Fresh off scoring his first career NBA basket, Boston Celtics rookie Fab Melo has been reassigned to the Maine Red Claws of the D-League.
Melo, originally recalled due to a quad injury, stuck with the team after fellow rookie Jared Sullinger was lost for the season due to a back injury. Melo appeared in two games, logging a total of eight minutes against the Magic and Lakers. His first career field goal and block came in Thursday's lopsided win over the Lakers.
