PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- The Maine Red Claws have opened their season with a win on the road.

The Red Claws beat the Canton Charge 123-115 in Canton on Friday night in an NBA Development League game.

Canton enjoyed as much as a 17-point lead early on in the contest, but Maine kept pressing throughout the second and third quarters to climb back in the game.

The Red Claws outscored the Charge 73-58 over that span, taking the lead with 18 seconds left in the third quarter and never falling behind again the rest of the game.

Maine heads to Fort Wayne for a game against the Mad Ants on Sunday.
