Former Orange basketball big man Fab Melo had a huge night for the Maine Red Claws tonight. Melo set an NBA Developmental League record with 14 blocked shots. He also registered a triple-double, adding 16 rebounds and 15 points to his block total.
His accomplishment didn’t go unnoticed:
I wish I could still swear on twitter, because Fab Melo’s stat line tonight deserves as much emphasis as possible.
