PORTLAND — The Mad Ants’ postseason magic continues.

The defending NBA D-League champions beat the Maine Red Claws 121-111 Saturday before a crowd of 2,437 at the Portland Expo to sweep their best-of-three playoff series 2-0.

Fort Wayne awaits the winner of the Canton-Sioux Falls series, which resumes Monday night in South Dakota with Canton leading 1-0.

Maine won the Atlantic Division with a league-best 35-15 record in the regular season and earned the Eastern Conference top seed. The Mad Ants, seeded fourth and the last team to qualify in the East, rallied to a 104-103 overtime victory Tuesday night in Indiana in Game 1 of the series.

Dating back to last season, the Mad Ants are 8-0 in the playoffs.

Fort Wayne stretched its lead to as high as nine in the first half before Maine pulled even at 48-all. The Mad Ants threatened to pull away with a 16-point lead late in the third before Maine closed the quarter on a 6-0 run to make it 89-79.

The Claws had one final push in the fourth quarter, cutting the margin to two at 108-106 on a spinning drive by Romero Osby, who led Maine with 33 points.
