Red Claws highlights: How Tacko Fall, Tremont Waters fared in win vs. Raptors 905

The Maine Red Claws were back in action Wednesday for their second NBA G-League game against the Raptors 905 this week.

The Red Claws earned a 113-102 victory to improve their record to 4-0 atop the Eastern Conference. Maine is one of just two G-League teams still undefeated.

Here's how Tacko Fall and Tremont Waters fared in the Red Claws' latest win over the Raptors 905. Romeo Langford, one of the Boston Celtics' 2019 first-round draft picks, was inactive due to injury.

TACKO FALL

The 7-foot-5 center scored 14 points on 5-for-7 shooting with seven rebounds and three blocks in 24 minutes. His interior defense was quite impressive.

TREMONT WATERS

Waters led the Red Claws with 24 points (8-for-13 shooting) and nine assists, as well as three steals and two rebounds in an impressive all-around performance.

Another standout performer for the Red Claws was power forward Yante Maten, who scored 10 points and pulled down a team-high 15 rebounds. Maine point guard Bryce Brown poured in 21 points with five assists.

The Red Claws are back in action Saturday at home against the Westchester Knicks.

Bryce Brown hits franchise 3's record in Red Claws loss

The Maine Red Claws were in action at home at the Portland Expo Center on Saturday night hosting the Delaware Blue Coats, taking a 128-123 loss to fall to 7-4 and fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Tacko Fall wasn’t in action, but Bryce Brown was simply furious, leading all scorers with 43 points 15 of 17 from the floor overall and a franchise single-game record 11 of 11 three-pointers. Tremont Waters was terrific, too, with 18 points and 11 assists.

HIGHLIGHTS

BRYCE BROWN

Brown, an undrafted free agent who helped lead Auburn to its first Final Four appearance last spring, was simply unconscious for the Claws. He shot a perfect 11 of 11 from three-point range to give him an absurd effective field goal percentage of 1.2 for the game.

TREMONT WATERS

Waters, the Connecticut native, was crafty in his distribution, with just four turnovers to go with his 11 assists.

Yante Maten (18 points), Vincent Poirier (18) and Justin Bibbs (10) also scored in double-figures for the Red Claws.

WHAT’S NEXT

The Red Claws return to action Friday in Des Moines, Iowa to face the Iowa Wolves, with tipoff at 8 p.m. ET.
