How Tacko Fall, Tremont Waters, Carsen Edwards fared for Red Claws Sunday


Tacko Fall returned to action for the Maine Red Claws on Sunday, completing what was an intriguing lineup in their afternoon game vs. the Windy City Bulls.

Fall, who missed Friday's game with a foot injury, suited up alongside fellow Boston Celtics rookies Tremont Waters, Carsen Edwards, and Vincent Poirier.

It still wasn't enough to lead to a Red Claws victory, though, as Windy City defeated Maine by a score of 120-112.

Here's how Fall, Waters, Edwards, and Poirier each performed:


Tacko was sensational in his return. The 7-foot-5 phenom was only one block away from a triple-double, as he posted 16 points, 14 rebounds and nine blocks on the day. Fall has been a walking double-double with the Red Claws all season long.


Waters took a back seat to the other C's rookies on Sunday as he tallied only five points on 2-for-7 shooting. He continued to be a dime-dropper for Maine, however, as he dished out six assists.


Edwards continues to have trouble finding his shot. The Purdue product had eight points on 3-for-14 shooting. He was a putrid 0-for-8 from 3-point range.


Poirier notched his second straight double-double, dropping 15 points while bringing down 12 boards. He also swatted away three shots.

Other standouts in this game for the Red Claws were Bryce Brown (18 points, 5 rebounds), Kaiser Gates (15 points, 10 rebounds), and Yante Maten (15 points, 10 rebounds).

The Red Claws next will play Wednesday at 11 a.m. ET when they'll visit the Delaware Blue Coats.
