Tacko Fall got off to a slow start in the Red Claws’ game against the Delaware Blue Coats (Sixers) on Wednesday. Every time the ball hit his hands in the paint, the Blue Coats knew how to respond.

But as the game progressed, Fall gained some momentum — certainly enough to log his 18th double-double for the Red Claws. He scored 12 points on 6-for-12 shooting and grabbed 14 rebounds in Maine’s 113-92 loss.

Tremont Waters had an injury scare in the second quarter with his left elbow, but he did return. Though, the point guard never found his shot, finishing with five points on 2-for-10 shooting (1-for-4 from deep).
