The Boston Celtics have bolstered their front line recently with 10-day contracts handed out to 6-foot-9 D.J. White and 6-10 Shavlik Randolph.

That has allowed Boston to send 7-foot center Fab Melo back to the Red Claws, in time for their 7 p.m. game at the Expo tonight. Maine is also playing a Sunday home game at 1 p.m.

The Red Claws are trying to end a five-game losing streak and get back into playoff contention. See today's story.
