There was still some level of tension between Tacko Fall and Raptors 905 forward Devin Robinson in their rematch on Wednesday. They were physical on both ends of the floor, especially early, but it wasn’t until late in the game where Fall got a bit too frustrated on a play in which Robinson was involved.

While Fall had the ball in the paint late in the fourth, he was called for a travel after multiple Raptors 905 players swarmed him. He wasn’t happy with the call and expressed as much, receiving another technical foul, his second in as many games. (Robinson made sure to direct the referee’s attention to Fall after he made his comments which led to the tech.)

Ultimately, Fall’s technical foul didn’t have an impact on the result of the game, with Maine winning 113-102.

Fall finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots. He went 5-for-7 from the floor and 2-for-2 from the free-throw line.

Tremont Waters was Maine’s star in the win. He led the Red Claws with 24 points and nine assists. Waters went 8-for-13 from the floor, 3-for-7 from deep and 4-for-4 at the line. He also had three steals.

Waters had plenty of good plays in the win, but one of his earliest ones stood out most. After Yante Maten set a screen along the perimeter, Waters sensed contact as Raptors 905 guard Paul Watson tried to keep up. Waters got the 3-pointer off, made it, earned a trip to the line and converted the 4-point play.
