Fall was named to the NBA G League All-Defensive Team, which is awarded to the top five defensive players in the league. Fall averaged 2.9 blocks per game, good for third in the G League behind Christ Koumadje (4.0) and Kenny Wooten (3.6). Fall's imposing 7-foot-5 frame altered an abundance of shots throughout the 2019-20 season. The big center also averaged 12.9 points and 11.1 rebounds (7.6 defensive rebounds) while shooting 70.7 percent from the field over 23.3 minutes per game. It will be interesting to see if Fall garners playing time with the Celtics when the season resumes in late July.
Fall generated 16 points (7-7 FG, 2-5 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist and nine blocked shots over 25 minutes in Sunday's 120-112 home loss to Windy City. Tacko was one swat short of a triple-double in this disappointing loss to Windy City. Fall started the game, but five personal fouls limited his playing time. Maine also has center Vincent Poirier on loan from the Celtics eating into Fall's playing time, yet Fall still posted a great stat line. The Claws will look to turn things around Wednesday at Delaware.
Fall has appeared in both of the Maine Red Claws' last two games, putting up a combined 32 points (14-20 FG, 2-6 FT), 29 rebounds, 10 blocks and two assists between the two contests. Fall played 30 and 28 minutes, respectively, in wins over the Capital City Go-Go and Erie Bayhawks, indicating the injury that forced him out early in a Feb. 23 victory over the Westchester Knicks is no longer a concern. Though the Celtics are shorthanded due to injuries heading into Wednesday's game in Cleveland, Fall apparently won't be an option off the bench. The NBA's official injury report lists Fall as still being on assignment in the G League.
Fall left Sunday's game versus Westchester early due to an undisclosed injury. The big man exited with 9:41 remaining in the first quarter. Fall was called for his second offensive foul early in the game. During the resulting stoppage in play, Fall was subbed out and didn't return. There was no obvious visual clue as to what sort of injury Fall might have sustained, but he's dealt with shoulder and concussion issues already this season.
Fall supplied 16 points (8-13 FG, 0-1 FT), 15 rebounds and three blocked shots in Saturday's 116-109 road lost to the Raptors 905. Fall and Yante Maten were the only effective shooters for a Red Claw team that the 905 held to 40 percent shooting from the field and just 19 percent from behind the arc. The loss snapped a three game winning streak for Crustacean Nation. Maine now quickly travels to Westchester for an afternoon game versus the Knicks.
