7′ 6″ Tacko Fall ‘Raises The Roof’ in Maine Debut
The Celtics prospect wowed the crowd, and still might've left some on the table “I’d give myself a 6 out of 10.”
Friday night, Tacko Fall thew up solid numbers in his Maine Red Claws home debut. According to Boston.com, he put up 16 points on 7-for-10 shooting, 13 rebounds, and 6 blocks.
...and the crowd LOVED IT
First of all, the Portland Expo was packed, with a sellout crowd of 2,400 checking out a G-League game. The crowd repeatedly chanted "we want Tacko," while Fall fueled the roaring applause by raising the roof after dunking in the second quarter.
No matter where the man goes. The TD Garden, Madison Square Garden, and now the Portland Expo have gone bananas for the 7' 6" center. According to Boston.com, Red Claws guard Trey Davis says Portland is now called “Tacko, Maine.”
However, getting used to Mainers has been an entertaining challenge. He told Boston.com “I can’t go nowhere in Maine,” he said. “People are just crazy.”
