After serving as a prop in the 2020 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, Tacko Fall got back to work for the Red Claws on Thursday. The big man almost finished with 20 rebounds (18) in Maine’s 119-100 win over the College Park Skyhawks (Atlanta).

Fall also scored 14 points on 7-for-14 shooting.

On top of logging yet another double-double, the big man blocked five shots.

As good as Fall’s numbers were on Thursday, there’s one stat that matters more for him than any other: 30 minutes played. Maine continues to stretch out the center and he continues to contribute in the paint in every way possible.

Fall is building stamina.

Tremont Waters also did very well in the win. He scored 18 points on 8-for-14 shooting (2-for-5 from deep).

Waters also finished with eight rebounds and seven assists.
