Bryce Brown hits franchise 3's record in Red Claws loss

The Maine Red Claws were in action at home at the Portland Expo Center on Saturday night hosting the Delaware Blue Coats, taking a 128-123 loss to fall to 7-4 and fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Tacko Fall wasn’t in action, but Bryce Brown was simply furious, leading all scorers with 43 points 15 of 17 from the floor overall and a franchise single-game record 11 of 11 three-pointers. Tremont Waters was terrific, too, with 18 points and 11 assists.

HIGHLIGHTS

BRYCE BROWN

Brown, an undrafted free agent who helped lead Auburn to its first Final Four appearance last spring, was simply unconscious for the Claws. He shot a perfect 11 of 11 from three-point range to give him an absurd effective field goal percentage of 1.2 for the game.

TREMONT WATERS

Waters, the Connecticut native, was crafty in his distribution, with just four turnovers to go with his 11 assists.

Yante Maten (18 points), Vincent Poirier (18) and Justin Bibbs (10) also scored in double-figures for the Red Claws.

WHAT’S NEXT

The Red Claws return to action Friday in Des Moines, Iowa to face the Iowa Wolves, with tipoff at 8 p.m. ET.

Report: Celtics sign guard Bryce Brown to training camp roster

Report: Celtics sign guard Bryce Brown to training camp roster

With training camp about to begin and the Celtics looking to add a 20th player to their camp roster, they reportedly had come to terms last week with 6-foot-8 forward Yante Maten. Now, Keith Smith of RealGM reports that the C's never executed that signing and instead have signed guard Bryce Brown.

Both players were All-SEC selections. Brown, a 6-3 guard, led Auburn to the Final Four last season, and Maten was signed by the Miami Heat out of Georgia in 2018. Brown went undrafted this past June and played for the Sacramento Kings' Summer League team. 

Maten played two games for the Heat last season and spent the rest of the season with their G-League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce. He could still find his way to the Celtics' G-League team, the Maine Red Claws, where Brown is likely headed after camp.
