Tacko Fall was unstoppable in the paint in Maine’s 129-115 win on Sunday. He finished with 21 points on 9-for-9 shooting (2-for-4 from the free-throw line).

Even though he only had two assists, Fall made some good passes when Raptors 905 players double-teamed before he could make a move to the rim.

Fall blocked two shots and he altered even more. Though, fatigue set in for the big man when he stayed on the floor too long, creating a few too many easy opportunities at the rim for Raptors 905.

Fall was also called for his first technical foul. Devin Robinson got extra physical with Fall late in the fourth quarter while the Red Claws held a comfortable lead. After Tremont Waters drove to the basket, missed the shot and the ball trickled away, Fall went face to face with Robinson. They were separated quickly and both called for personal and technical fouls after a referee review.

Waters struggled to find his shot on Sunday, finishing with eight points on 3-for-10 shooting (2-for-7 from three).

Although Waters facilitated well throughout (11 assists) — despite playing off the ball much more than he did in Friday’s game — he didn’t play with the same pace he normally does from start-to-finish.

Romeo Langford was out for the Red Claws on Sunday due to a right ankle injury he sustained during Friday's game.
