Celtics rookie Tremont Waters named NBA G League Player of the Month

Tremont Waters has been sensational for the Maine Red Claws so far this season, and he's been rewarded for his standout performance in the month of November.

Waters was named the NBA G League Player of the Month on Monday. The Boston Celtics two-way rookie was also named G League Player of the Week on Nov. 24.

The C's No. 51 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft becomes the second Red Claws player to earn Player of the Month honors, following Jordan Mickey who earned the award in December 2015.

In seven games, Waters has averaged 22.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 1.9 steals. The Red Claws are 7-0 when he's in the lineup.

Waters made his NBA debut on Nov. 25, helping the Celtics to a 103-102 victory over the Kings. The LSU product contributed 7 points, 3 assists, and 2 rebounds in 20 minutes.

Next up for Waters and the Red Claws is a matchup Thursday, Dec. 5 at home against the Wisconsin Herd.

Red Claws: How Romeo Langford, Tremont Waters fared against Long Island Nets

Tacko Fall (knee) is still out for the Maine Red Claws. But two other notable Celtics prospects were on the court for Sunday's game against the Long Island Nets.

In a back-and-forth battle, the Red Claws ended up winning 116-114. Both Romeo Langford and Tremont Waters had double-digit scoring outputs and were a big part of the Red Claws offense.

Langford got off to a very slow start for the Red Claws in his first game back from injury. But the 14th overall pick really came alive in the third quarter, scoring 10 points and making some nice plays to keep the Red Claws ahead. He finished the day with 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting and also brought down three boards.

Unfortunately, Langford had to exit the court after suffering an apparent ankle injury in the fourth quarter. Hopefully, it won't keep him sidelined as long as his most recent ankle issue did.

As for Waters, it's telling that Waters didn't have his best performance on Sunday yet still was able to post and double-double. Waters only shot 6-of-19 from the field, but he was strong down the stretch, scoring often late in the game to finish with 17 points, 10 assists, and three steals. He was in foul trouble (5) and did have seven turnovers, but he still was able to help the team earn the victory.

Here's a look at some of the top highlights from the game.
