The Maine Red Claws will try to end their two-game losing streak when they face the Erie BayHawks at the Erie Insurance Arena at 7 p.m. Thursday.
The BayHawks (2-1) are led by a couple of former Big East standouts -- 6-foot-6 swing player D.J. Kennedy (St. John's) and 7-foot center Henry Sims (Georgetown). Kennedy played a handful of games for the Cleveland Cavaliers last year, and Sims was in the Knicks' training camp before being waived.
The BayHawks are the Knicks' affiliate in the NBA D-League.
Maine (2-2) will not have forward Kris Joseph, who was recalled by the Celtics. Maine will have newly claimed forward Dajuan Summers, 6-8, another former Georgetown player. He has played previously for the Pistons and Hornets of the NBA.
The Red Claws will return to Portland for home games Saturday (7 p.m.) and Sunday (5 p.m.).
