#RedClaws Announce 2010-11 Schedule

The Maine Red Claws, presented by Quirk Chevrolet, today announced the schedule for the 2010-11 season. The Red Claws will play a 50-game schedule, with 24 games at home, 24 on the road and a two-game league showcase. The 2011 NBA D-League Showcase will take place on January 10-13 at the South Padre Island (TX) Convention Center.

The Red Claws will open at home on Friday, November 19 with a two-game weekend set against the Austin Toros. The team will then head down I-95 to renew a rivalry with the Springfield Armor with a trio of games before returning home December 3 to face the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

“We are proud of the success that the organization had in our inaugural season, including tying the league record for wins by a first-year team and 24 straight sellouts,” said Jennings. “There is no better atmosphere than at the Expo on a game day, and we are looking forward to Red Claws fans packing the house in season two. We have a lot of surprises in store for them this year. It’s going to be a great season.”

The Red Claws will play 24 home games at the Portland Expo this season, with 18 of those games falling on weekend dates. Of the 18 weekend contests, 8 will fall on Sundays and will feature early start times to encourage families with young children to attend; four Sunday games will tip off at 1 PM and four at 5 PM. The team will also play a special day game on Thursday, February 24 during school vacation week with a 1 PM tip off.

Maine fans will have the opportunity to see 10 of the Red Claws’ 15 NBA D-League opponents, including the expansion Texas Legends led by Head Coach Nancy Lieberman, the Idaho Stampede coached by former Red Claws assistant Randy Livingston, and the 2010 NBA D-League champion Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Also making their way to Maine this season will be: Austin Toros, Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Springfield Armor, Dakota Wizards, Erie BayHawks, Tulsa 66ers, and Iowa Energy.
